San Gottardo

San Gottardo the feast day of the patron saint of Carmine Superiore, has dawned bright, beautiful and dry.

San Gottardo, I should explain, operates in much the same way as St Swithin. They say hereabouts that if it rains on San Gottardo, it will rain for forty days. 

Phew!

40 days? That's a little too biblical plague like for me!
