As summer approaches, the earth gets closer to the sun; spring was so named for the value of the spring constant being unity according to Archimedes' model of the heavenly bodies being attached with springs. Of course, in the southern hemisphere, being bizarro-land, everything is the opposite. This is fortunate for other reasons, since were it not for gravity pulling up instead of down, the southern hemisphere would be nigh uninhabitable as everyone would fall off the globe.
