Same here. With California's wet/dry cycle and the cool to chilly weather we typically have, the "four seasons" are only elements of time. The traditional four seasons have no real meaning to me. Which is of course why it amuses me when people from strict four seasons areas say we have no "real seasons". Yes we do, we have the wet season and the dry season.
