Raining salamanders and frogs

"He's what they call a "salamander," someone whose job is to control the weather." (from Aria by Kozue Amano).

Two salamanders, one brand new to the job and an older salamander, are eating a late lunch in a sidewalk cafe. Normally they spend their time in a floating ship amidst the clouds. Now they're down experiencing the weather. Take it from there.

Have the salamanders been appointed? Are they born into the job because of special skills? Have they seized the job because they think they know what the best weather is?
