```Dear Jim,

Thank you very much for nice suggestion and figure there. But what I need
is the y axis start from let say 7 (July) and end at 6 (June).
In those sense, I can said clearly that the occurrence, minima in this
case, is fall during winter season, because Jan and Dec close to each other.
Actually everything is good, but I want to 'kill' my curiosity.

year<-c(1981:2015)
month<-c(3, 1, 12, 11, 2, 1, 12, 1, 2, 1, 12, 3, 2, 12, 2, 7, 2, 6, 2, 1,
1, 12, 3, 12, 3, 12, 2, 2, 9, 2, 1, 4, 12, 3, 4)
plot(month~year,xaxt="n", type="b", ylab="Month", xlab="Year")
axis(1, at=1981:2015,cex.axis=.8)

Best,
Ani
