*Temperatures get hot very quickly, however, shifting from warm growing weather to the dead heat of midsummer very swiftly; Descending Fire is the hottest month of the year; the South gets ''very'' closely aquainted with the Unconquered Sun as he looms high and long in the sky, the western Breadfruit Trees dry up, the forests of the East are starved for water, and the North becomes bright and temperate, fully open to trader's and travellers. Following this, temperatures fall rapidly, heralding storms across Creation and hurrying in the year's last harvest.

The weather of Creation is kind of crazy. The calendar years begins in the closest thing Creation has to Autumn, the months of Air (which for some reason are ''not'' associated with winter,) then plummets into deepest winter. The weather climbs out of winter into a long growing season consisting of Earth, Wood and the early part of Fire, then it becomes the hottest summer heat followed by plummeting drastically into the month of Air again.

Yes, Creation has ''schitzo weather''. The year starts in the dead of winter, just like on Earth, and it proceeds through to Spring. However, instead of Summer, the closest thing Creation has to Autumn comes next, and remains part of the growing season, before transitioning straight to the blaze of midsummer heat, which is seperated from the dead of winter only by the five days of Calibration.

Needless to say, anything still in the fields when Calibration hits is in bad shape; if it hasn't been harvested by Ascending Water, you can probably kiss it goodbye unless it's some kind of super-duper magical crop that can withstand a rapid drop from blazing midsummer to the dead of winter inside a fortnight, with a heaping helping of terrible storms and moonsoons.
βˆ’
This means that Creation has two wet times, both of them bracketing winter - once when the temperature is plumetting from the midsummer heat through the early months of autumn towards the midwinter freeze, and once more when climbing out of that freeze.
