Folklore about Weather by the Month


Dirty Weather

To celebrate our 225th anniversary, we’re looking through our archives to bring you 225 pieces of wit, wisdom, and fun in a series we’re calling Almanac Treasures (see more of them here).

Dirty days hath September
April, June, and November.
From January to May,
The rain it raineth every day.
All the rest have thirty-one,
Without a blessed gleam of sun.
And if any of them had two-and-thirty,
They’d be just as wet and twice as dirty.
