  1. 3. In the beginning of April the weather is generally very cold. The first fifteen days of April are called riabhach days. There is a fable about a cow which was delicate and she thought she would die in March. When March had passed the cow said "farewell March" On the fifteenth day of April she died.
    If it rains on a Friday it is said it would rain also on Sunday. People are always expecting rain on the 15th. of August. It is said if it rains on St. Swithin's day that it will rain for forty days and forty nights.
