He could also have phrased it "latter half of 2019," or "2019 third
and fourth quarters," or even simply "last year" (the topic at hand
didn't *really* warrant any more specific time frame than that to
begin with). This is a which habit of I've needed to cure myself in
recent decades too, so I totally empathize. It's hard to remember to
avoid referring to global events relative to the seasons in which I
experienced them, and that for others on the planet it was not the
same seasons they were experiencing. These days, I have my editor
treat names of seasons as a red flag when I'm reviewing what I've
written, so that I hopefully don't forget.
