We've had a lot of heat during that time, so that makes a lot of sense to me.

When I was a kid, it was during the dog days of summer in 1952

when the polio epidemic struck in our area. This was before Jonas Salk developed the vaccine, there were cases in little Salkum and the other small towns from which kids attended school in Mossyrock. We were not allowed to swim in the creek and after a boy in town came down with the disease, everybody pretty much avoided being around other people except when it was absolutely necessary. My bud Dell Wilson caught it, ended up with a limp, and felt lucky it wasn't worse.

My dad used to do the astronomical calculations for that feature of the Old Farmer's Almanac.  After he stopped doing them, someone somewhere assumed he had passed on, and announced this in a newsletter that made the rounds of my parent's trailering community. A correction was published, but for some time, Mom was referred to among them as The Widow Franklin.

Thank you! I never had learned that before. Interesting how it’s the Dog Days in Summer and a Three Dog Night in Winter. Good to read you again.

I've never looked that up before, just assumed it was the hottest part of summer.  Thank you for the info.  Two movies that I always liked and have seen several times is "Long Hot Summer" with Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward and "In The Heat of the Night" with Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger--both well done.
