ADAIR, IA—A rainstorm that in August 1986 was told to "go away" and advised to come again another day returned Monday, soaking the downtown Adair area for much of the afternoon. Thirty-one-year-old investment banker Art Rosenblatt, who issued the request 22 years ago, when he went by the nickname Little Arthur, was among the first to recognize the weather system. "I suppose this was part of the agreement," Rosenblatt said. Later that day, at the behest of Adair resident Little Johnny, 8, the rain once again dissipated. It is expected to return in 2052 as a Category 5 hurricane.
