Summer Days…

The dog days of summer. Did you ever wonder where that phrase came from? The “dog days of summer” refer to the weeks between July 3 and August 11 and are named after the Dog Star (Sirius) in the Canis Major constellation. Sirius is behind the sun as seen from Earth in the Northern Hemisphere summer. In late summer, it appears in the east before sunrise – near the sun in our sky. The early stargazers might have imagined that the double-whammy of Sirius and the sun caused the hot weather or dog days.

Dog days or not, summer is a fun time for vacations, swimming, camping, and enjoying all the outdoors has to offer. We hope you’ll take advantage of the warmer weather.

We wish you have a safe and fun summer!
