Editor's Note: Not much to say here though I am interested in why rain would stop a trip to town.  I mean they could take their horses down to the livery and then catch the train to Jamestown.  Umbrellas had been invented.  I'm guessing there was no real pressing business and rain sometimes curbs the enthusiasm required for effort.
