Not every year, but I believe that's correct this year. I've seen some years it's not until the 22nd or even as late as Christmas.

Not surprising since official season changes are based on orbit patterns, solstices, and lunar phases, which aren't always exactly on-pace with the human calendar.

it is very rare that it isn't the 21st. I have known maybe one year where it was as late as the 23rd, but it is usually the 21st.

Most important day ever.

That said, I am with you in that gall doesn't get enough love. It is a beautiful season, an explosion of red and orange and brown, with the latter growing more dominant as time goes on...

I agree

autum is my favorite season, I love the colors and the smell of autum air

edit: yes, I like autum air evrywhere

Huh, so it is, according to Wikipedia. I could have sworn there was one somewhere in the 90s when I was growing up that didn't hit until Christmas, but the chart only goes back to 2000.

Incidentally, I found why Europe measures their seasons differently. In the Americas, seasonal changes start on the days of the Equinoxes and Solstices. So the Summer Solstice - usually around June 21-23 - is the start of Summer. Ditto for the Winter Solstice and the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. But in Europe and Asia, the Solstices and the Equinoxes are considered the CENTERPOINT of their respective seasons - hence referring to the Solstices as Midsummer and Midwinter a la Shakespeare. So for the seasons to be arranged with the Solstices/Equinoxes in the centers, Winter would have to kick in somewhere in early November and end in late January/early February, and Summer would have to start in early May and end in late July/early August.

in Germany summeer starts 21 june (called Mitsommernacht anyway) winter on dec.21

spring and fall vary from 20. to 22. march and september respectivly

Jesus H, that's a lot of money... My mother recently retired from her job as a junior high science teacher, and at the end of her 29 years teaching, she was making roughly $55,000 annually, before taxes and including benefits.

Yeah, I'm starting at about 1/3 of that.

Really, I'm NOT in this for the pay. (Although it's significantly higher than what I was making before going back to school.) I'm one of those odd ducks who enjoys teaching, and loves math.

Sadly, I found out that the bachelor's degree pay scale tops out after 8 years, so I"ll be going BACK to school to get my Masters within a few years.

while I am diametrically opposed to math, I can only sing the praises of one who teaches for the love of the subject. I hope the kids and the administration and politics don't grind that love out of you, I truly truly do.

Love your passion. Still hate math.


I spent over an hour after school today turning my back board into a vocab wall for root words, complete with a giant tree for the pun of it. My TA now thinks I'm certifiable because my exact instruction to her was "Hey, can you go to the library and make me about seven thousand of these little leaf things?"

I may be going extremely overboard with them, but given how low the ACT averages around here are, I'm hoping throwing roots at them will help with at the very least the English/Reading sections.

Gave them mal and bene/bon this round. I was pleasantly surprised that they were already passingly familiar with them.

Calculate the Integral from carrot to turnip of the quantity (5 rutabaga cubed + 3 cos(radish) - jicama) with respect to sweet potato.

Sub-zero rain with snow in it here today. At least it's finally acting like autumn.

Not my idea of autumn >_<

Back from walk =) Less cloudy than I expected but the breeze made up for it. Pretty picturesque suburban autumn, cool but not cold, breezy, lots of colorful leaves getting blown around. I need to do this more often on my lunch break, before the cold gets too much.
