Across the world, there are four recognized seasons that are supposed to happen each year: spring, summer, fall and winter.

That said, depending on where you're located across the country, certain seasons are more, or less, prominent than others. States down south, with warmer climates, often have very abbreviated fall and spring seasons as they jump from the heat of summer, to the chill of winter, and back.

The number of seasons listed here --- thirteen --- also feels pretty accurate. It translates to, roughly, one season per month, and that makes sense. The weather that we experience on April 1st is vastly different from the weather on May 1st, which is different from June 1st, and so on.

So, if we're abiding by Two Buttons Deep's model here, then happy Pothole Season everyone!
