It is St Swithin's Day today and tradition has whatever the weather today, it will remain like this for 40 days.
'St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St. Swithin's day if thou be fair
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair.'
It is now 8.45pm and we have had no rain....... Fingers crossed for the London Olympics. I wonder if events have had to be delayed because of unseasonal weather?
