Seasons in the Southern Hemisphere:

  • Summer: December - March (northern winter)
  • Fall: March - June (northern spring)
  • Winter: June - September (northern summer)
  • Spring: September - December (northern fall)

Does water drain counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere?

That is a myth. Although cyclonic storms tend to rotate the way you describe, water vortexes do not. The particular shape and configuration of the drain, as well as the initial conditions of the swirl, play a much greater role in determining which way the vortex rotates. Although there is such a thing as coriolis, you can't observe it on anything smaller than a storm system. The idea that water spins one way or the other when going down the drain is an urban legend.
