Needs More Seasoning

I think Norm is supposed to be the Las Vegas version of Louella Parsons, who chats about what the celebs are doing in our town.

In today's column, he asks Rich Grant, seasoned spokesperson for the Denver Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau to share some of the weirdest questions his staff have been asked.
Grant's favorite?

"What season is it right now?"

I don't get why that is weird. Maybe Grant isn't so seasoned after all. Does he not realize that seasons are different in different parts of the world? For example, Culture.Gov.Au lists the seasons for Australia:

Like all countries in the southern hemisphere (the hemisphere south of the Equator), Australia's seasons follow the sequence:

Summer: December to February
Autumn: March to May
Winter: June to August
Spring: September to November

So perhaps the tourist who asked the question, just wanted to know what season it was in the United States.
