St. Swithin's day

Sorry folks - but don't forget it is St Swithin's Day today ....

So, if it rains today we will have a wet summer ... but if it is dry - 40 days of sunshine ahead. As the poem goes :-

"St Swithin’s Day, if it does rain
Full forty days, it will remain
St Swithin’s Day, if it be fair
For forty days, t'will rain no more."
