Looking at your example and the help page, it looks to me as though
the plot is consistent with the "A" matrix:
Rain 0.25 0.75
Nice 0.60 0.40
# help page
A - square coefficient matrix, specifying the links (rows=to, cols=from).
In your plot (attached):
Rain (col) goes to Rain (row) 0.25
Rain (col) goes to Nice (row) 0.6
Nice (col) goes to Nice (row) 0.4
Nice (col) goes to Rain (row) 0.75
This is a bit confusing, but it seems to do what it says it does.
