You see, we're in a drought situation here in California. It's been very dry these past three years, and it's starting to take its toll on agriculture here in the state.
That's a bad thing. California's agriculture feeds a great chunk of the United States.
Well, Sunday, February 2nd, Mormons all over the State of California joined together for a special day of prayer and fasting, calling upon God to please end the drought.
Immediately following that, there began to be storms in the northern part of the State. Now, we're finally seeing some moisture, with lots more rain predicted in the 10-day forecast.
Simply put: prayer works.
I know it will take more than a couple of inches of rain to end the drought, but we're on the right track. With God's help, we'll get the moisture that we need.
Now, we can worry about flooding and mud slides in the burn areas from last month's fires.. Yup, that's the calamity cycle here in Southern California: drought-fires-flooding-mud slides... and somewhere in there, earthquakes. It's year round excitement.
