This years November was a lot warmer than usual.
Last year summer didn’t really start until the Solstice.

Interesting – I’ve always gone for the summer solstice date because there is no way in the world that autumn starts on March 1 in this country.

Also when in England spring doesn’t really kick in until April.

Just my opinion anyway.

Question for you – how many people actually know what the solstice is and its significance on weather patterns?

Absolutely no idea –  well they will know when the solstice is now!

What’s your take on the significance on weather patterns from that date?
