Just the other day a friend, or maybe my partner, was remarking at how Sydney was starting to turn. Winter was finally approaching proper, which was neatly timed since we were also in the midst of getting excited about Game of Thrones.
So that led to today's Off Topic: what's the best season of the year?
The question often comes down to a "do you like the heat or the cold", and between the two I'm more a fan of the cold. My argument is that you can add layers a lot more easily than you can take them off. That's especially the case if you don't have air conditioning, although I'm fortunate enough not to live in a place where the temperature drops below zero frequently.
But there's more to a year than just the bitter cold and the searing heat. There's the blooming springtime, with all the pollen and hayfever it brings, and the falling leaves of autumn. Weather wise, the autumn months are probably perfect as far as the eastern states are concerned. But having grown up in the Southern Highlands, it's really the spring and the rejuvenation of the landscape that stands out to me.
So. You've got four seasons in a year. Which one makes you feel the best?
