St Swithun's Day

'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.'

St Swithun was an English saint. Does the proverb still hold in Scotland? Well, we'll soon find out! It started out fine - I got two loads of laundry dried in the sunshine - and then it drizzled. Hmmm ...... Glasgow weather forecast according to the BBC - Click here. Meanwhile, there's a big, fat cloud over Glasgow on the Met Office map. Only MEDIUM cloud, they tell me.
