Very hot July, August, and September, breed hard frosts and intense cold for the next January.
If the deer rise up dry and lie down dry on St. Bullion's day (July 4th), it is a sign there will be a good goose harvest.
Dog days bright and clear,
Portend a happy year ;
But if accompanied with rain,
For better times all hopes are vain.
A heavy rainfall in the middle of July shows that St. Mary Magdalene is washing her handkerchief to go to her cousin St. James' fair."
