I hate wet and reiny days. It rained a lot in 1816 like almost every day. the weather in Europe was abnormally wet because it rained in Switzerland on 130 out of the 183 days from April to September. If I was Mary Shelley I might decide to write a book too. Afterall, it was the onnly thing you could do without TV or anything. So, people were stuck inside and bored.
