understanding weather magic

Poll #781477 the most effective way to make it rain (if you're not in a drought)

Which of the following magics produces rain in non-drought conditions?

walking to a job interview without an umbrella
1(12.5%)
holding a tag sale on the front lawn
0(0.0%)
hanging laundry on an outdoor line
3(37.5%)
a charity walk/run/bike event held on the day
0(0.0%)
creating the best chalk drawing ever on a good section of street/driveway/sidewalk
2(25.0%)


If you say, "I haven't brought an umbrella, so it's bound to rain," that is a good counter-magic for the rain-producing magic of not bringing the umbrella in the first place--because magic loves to prove you wrong.

More anon.

You're right! That usually brings on rain when you're just finishing the waxing...

Another option is: get married.

Get married, and have inexperienced caterers who don't set up a tent in case of these sorts of weather events...

I have something to add to the list..

wearing a lovely silk saree with zari (gold lace work) that will turn and curl up in rain and ruin the drape of the saree...

That would be *very* frustrating. Once it turns up, can you ever straighten it out again, or is it ruined forever?

no, not forever; but much ironing (pain!) is required...and there is that evening to get through, knowing you are not looking your best!

Go for a long hike but forget your rain gear.

Actually, in Colorado, it doesn't matter if you bring it or not... It's always gonna rain by the end of a long hike.
