Wicca can alter rainfall with their control weather ritual, not sure about Air
mages but I assume their Control Weather can too.
And yes it is scary.  A few years ago I had a Wicca cover a mountain with a
couple of yards of snow in spring/summer for their convenience, when it melted
it caused flooding in the local area destroying crops, livestock, some immediate
loss of life, then there were the longer term effects.
Fortuantely for the locals it was accidental, a malicious Wicca would summon
the heaviest rainfall they could to accompany the snow melt and cause even more
The best part of this is that with a bit of advance planning you can cause damage
100 miles away a day after you were there, like spring floods in Australia -
they can have flooding when they never even saw the rain that caused it.

This is all just taking the weather gauge at it's descriptive levels.
As far as fixing the numbers... halve them and change the scale to inches per

Warning of the day - don't mess with Wicca if you own any land.  Curse Crops/Livestock,
Control Weather for alternating  weeks of baking hot arid weather and flooding.

And if you're marching an Army anywhere take your own Wicca to ensure the weather
stays on your side.

Thank you.

a woman could annul her marriage if she could show that a man had padded his

And a man could annul his marriage if he could show that the wife had padded
her breasts.

Still, it doesn't explain the victorian habit of hiding table legs, because
they were too explicit. "I annul this feast because the table has padded

Of course men were greater peacocks than the women, if they could afford it,
and I assume courtiers know how to dress, pose, stand, walk, dance etc to
show off their comeliness to best advantage - and how to ensure others fail
to do so. Or dare not.

oh well, still only Tuesday, sigh...
