    Actually, I've been updating it, I just haven't posted it for awhile. There were a couple of major things in Hal Grieves I need to take into account when I have time. It could, in fact, change the entire timeline.

    Oh, man... What a marvel. I still can't get over how much of a fan and how focused you must be to complete something like this!

Even April is a bit of a stretch there.

    We just have to pretend maybe he meant it was or just ignore it because, as I said, it's not going to fit otgether perfectly.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The version I've attached includes Malcolm's Car. From what I could see, there's really no evidence that shows much of anything about timing, other than the clothing is still spring-like, so I've decided to keep Malcolm's Car in April for now. Let me know if you saw clues I didn't.

    Admin, I saved it as an htm file this time, but it didn't turn out as pretty as when you did it. Did you manually put each season on a new line? That's really handy. Anyway, here's the updated version. I'd be thrilled to continue to hear your feedback.
    Ok, I know this above reply is over 3 years old, but I must question into the possibility of ruling out months due to the trees/leaves looks.

    The above reply states "I really don't think one could have a picnic--in which the leaves are green, I might add--in March...regardless of where they live."

    I live in the same city the majority of the filming takes place, and no matter what you say about the location the fictional family lives, the on-location filming takes place at REAL locations. There are many places in the United States where there is mostly green plants in March. Right now we are in Apirl, and every tree around me in Los Angeles is vibrantly green and have been that way for a month or even more. It does not snow here, and I never seen it go bellow 50F where I live, so the majority of trees here are not ones that usually will have leaves fall. However some of them might turn autumn colors and have leave falls, but by March all of those are turned green again.

    This picnic was just an example I picked, but I would like to know if other dates have been shifted becuase it has been overlooked that the family most likely lives in the southern half of the U.S. and therefore winter would not cause that big of a difference in the looks of trees. For example, in Los Angeles, the climates of March and May can be very similar.

    There were a number of factors that went into the final timeline (which that post doesn't refer to by the way, but a much earlier copy) and each of those factors were weighted in importance. I had to consider the weather. I mean, Buseys Take a Hostage couldn't have happened in July because Dewey was dreaming for a snow day, and spring break eps like Jury Duty and Butterflies have to happen in spring. In future revisions, though, actual weather like whether one would have a picnic in January were weighted less than the other factors.
