Sir: Having kept a rain gauge now for 40 years, I find that Thursday is the wettest day of the week, as the following figures show. Not surprising really, because Thursday is the God of Thunar (thunder). Thirty- nine years - 1954-92 inclusive:

Sunday. . . . . . . . . .125.17 inches

Monday. . . . . . . . . .132.78 inches

Tuesday . . . . . . . . .136.43 inches

Wednesday . . . . . . . .134.85 inches

Thursday. . . . . . . . .143.16 inches

Friday. . . . . . . . . .133.94 inches

Saturday. . . . . . . . .132.57 inches

TOTAL. . . . . . . . . . .938.90 inches

Since one inch equals 101 tons to the acre, the difference between Sundays and Thursdays is substantial.

Yours faithfully,
