In my particular corner of Australia we really only have two seasons throughout the year. There's the long, long 'dry' season which lasts from around April (mid-Autumn) to December (beginning of Summer).
The 'wet' season is quite short in comparison, usually lasting from January (mid-Summer) to the end of February (end of Summer). Though short in duration, it can be very harsh with lasting effects and dire consequences, including not just weeks and weeks of torrential rain, but also nasty cyclones.
Here are some of my posts that mention a little of what happens during our 'wet'!
