Can I Stop Praying For Rain?

This is a question for my dad really (and he doesn't read my blog...go figure). As a daughter of a dry farmer in southeastern Idaho, I was trained from an early age to always pray for moisture. We are always in a drought. But is the drought over? Because seriously, I feel like it is either raining or snowing every other day. Okay, so the snow looks like it has taken a short break (I predict snow in June this year, however), but I have had the little tune "Raindrops keep falling on my head..." running around in my head for quite some time now. I get to work outdoors, so I get to fully appreciate the moisture from heaven at its best. Which translates into wet feet, wet hair, and wet pioneer dress. It also, hopefully, means full reservoirs, green trees, and the beautiful scent of rain. But I really am curious, at what point does a drought end? Because Snowbird is still open for skiing business, apparently.

I did some research. Yep...despite the rain, we are still in a moderate drought from what the research shows and it appears that the drought will continue. So the answer to my question: No, we must still pray for rain.

I agree. I myself am a daughter of a farmer. So praying for moisture is always a must.

I'd be thrilled with the rain, if we could just restrict it to the nighttime hours...between midnight and about 6:00am would be ideal. Actually I don't mind the rain so much as I do the cold. Brrr, it's chilly today for mid-May!!

BTW: I finally saw 'Enchanted', and I really quite liked it.
