Officially it started on the 1st of March, although some folk reckon it is the 20th of March. Where I live, it has just changed over to Fall, or Autumn as we call it Downunder. Our days are still oppressively hot, so a few cool Fall days would be nice. Nothing but sunshine since Christmas has left us parched and brown - rain can't come soon enough! After YOUR winter, any signs of warming would be VERY welcome, I would imagine!!!
