August has arrived and we are squarely in the middle of the “dog days of summer” – a loose translation of a term coined by ancient Romans for the period encompassing the first week of July through the second week of August. You might be interested to learn that these are the weeks in which the star Sirius, also known as the “dog star,” rises and sets at the same time as our sun. These weeks tend to be the hottest days of the year and the time when many take trips to try to beat the heat by going somewhere cooler. Perhaps that’s to the mountains; or a shoreline along a lake, river or beach; or even a cabin in the woods. It’s great to just get away and escape the heat.
