Earth, 1657 AM: Winter starts.
Chazal tell us: “The second half of Tishrei, all of MarCheshvan, and the first half of Kislev are the days of planting. The second half of Kislev, all of Tevet, and the first half of Shevat are the winter days. The second half of Shevat, all of Adar, and the first half of Nisan are the period of cold; the second half of Nisan, all of Iyar, and the first half of Sivan are the harvest period. The second half of Sivan, all of Tammuz, and half of Av are the summer season, while the second half of Av, all of Elul, and the first half of Tishrei are the season of heat.”
