Seasonal

Seasonal"So, this is the wet." Rose pulled her hood closer around her face and lowered her head as she slogged through the downpour at the Doctor's side, blowing raindrops off the end of her nose with a loud puff. "Tell me there's a dry."

Hands in pockets, the Doctor ignored the rain. "When it comes, it'll be so hot that the jungle will die back completely, lying dormant until the next wet season."

"So all this is a season's growth?" Rose looked up at the trees towering over them. "I guess you really can watch the grass grow around here."

Many thanks. The line you liked kind of snuck in at the end, nice when that happens.

*fights off sudden urge to take that concept of really drastic seasons and build a world and several cultures around it*

Um, that is to say, very cool idea, liked it a lot!

Admittedly, it's a little more drastic than we get here, but as you get closer to the equator seasons are reduced to the wet and the dry. Now you can plan that trip to the top of Australia for research.

There was a science fiction novel several years ago about a world with such an eccentric orbit that it goes into a severe winter for decades. I don't recall the name of it, but I couldn't get warm for about a week after I finished reading.

Okay, there's no way I'm going to Spain ...

Spain has a rather nice climate, nothing like this.

I know; in fact, I've heard the rain there falls mainly on the plain. That weather sounds more like what we get in Indiana, where there are two seasons: Winter and road construction.
