Certainly the dog days of summer are here, but ever wonder where that term came from?
From souledout.org: "The Dog Days of summer are the hottest times of the year in the northern hemisphere, which lasts anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks ... between early July and early September. Why are they called the "Dog Days?" These days get their name from the Dog Star, Sirius, the brightest star in the in the constellation Canis Major. At this time of year Sirius disappears into the Sun's glow. Both heavenly bodies are in conjunction, rising and setting at the same time. Ancient stargazers thought the heat from Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens, combined with the heat of the Sun produced the hottest weather of the year."
