That is the last time that I will trust Arthur to look after Manchester.

On Tuesday 7th June I flew away to Turkey for a short holiday, leaving Manchester in the capable hands of Arthur Chappell. At the time the Sun was shining and the temperature was quite warm here. Just one short week later I flew home, arriving at Manchester shortly before midnight on Tuesday evening. The ground was wet, signifying that it had recently rained. Yesterday started out fairly overcast and cold, which turned into quite heavy rain by early afternoon. Now today we have yet another miserable dark sky and portending rain. The city was enjoying great weather when I handed it over, but within a week it has deteriorated vastly. Clearly Arthur has done an atrocious job in my absence and can no longer be trusted as custodian.

Absolutely and it has been like that since you left. We were hoping you would bring the sun back with you but you failed to do that. There is only one thing to do about it now and that is send all the rain up to Manchester!

Huh, maybe he's the one responsible for the dreary days we're having now in Michigan too, perhaps? The first of the week was great, but yesterday it rained in the morning and today it was supposed to be done already, but must have forgotten. A smidgen of rain is circling around our area and won't quit. The rest of the week will be nicer though and hopefully warmer too.
