It intrigues me that the media in Minnesota (the TV news, for example) refers to summer as distinct three month periods that coincide with the equinox and the solstice, when that's clearly out of sync with other tendencies of the season. Early December with snow and temperatures well below freezing is clearly "winter," at least to me, not late fall.
Same with summer. It starts well before June 21. There are some very reliable signs of summer I see when running and I've seen them all in the past week.
