Letter: Is Tuesday wetter than any other day of the week?

Why does it always rain on Market Day?
Why does it always rain on Market Day?

I am writing this on Tuesday morning (Market Day) and it’s raining, again!

Is it my imagination or does it seem to rain on Tuesdays more frequently than on other days?

I don’t know whether the Royal Charter of 1245 which granted the right to hold a weekly market specifies that it must be held on a Tuesday, but if it doesn’t then why not consider switching Market Day to another, drier, day of the week?

I am sure the stallholders and customers would welcome it. I know I would!
