St Swithin

It's St Swithin's Day today and according to this traditional rhyme our weather today will be the same for the next forty 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
 
 So the rain stayed away where l live until about 9pm when we had a rain shower.  So I guess I have forty more days of rain to look forward too, if the rhyme is correct!  What have you got to look forward to rain or shine?
