3 July - Dog Days

Dog Days begin

Weather - As the Dog Days commence, so they end.
 If it rains on the first Dog-Day, it will rain for forty days after [or for thirty days after.  Take your pick]
Dog Days bright and clear, indicate a happy year.
But when accompanied by rain, we hope for better times in vain.

[Well, it is bright, sunny, and HOT in the Smallest State, so by gum! it had better be a happy year!]
