The Governor of Texas is praying for rain and the God of the winds send rain to everyone except Perry's state. needless to say Fleta put me on to this news flash.
Gov. Rick Perry has issued a proclamation asking Texans to pray for rain —
specifically on Friday through Sunday.
“I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal and robust way of life,” he said in the proclamation.
SAN ANTONIO — As Louisiana prepares for the drenching rains of Tropical Storm Lee, no more than a few sprinkles are expected over the long holiday weekend next door in Texas, which is suffering from an historic drought.
..What little rain is forecast for Texas is expected to be confined to the far southeastern part of the state, where the drought is the least severe.
"This is more of the bad luck that Texas has been experiencing," said Scott Landes, Senior Meteorologist with the Weather Channel.
He said the presence of the massive rain maker in the central Gulf of Mexico could actually decrease the chances of next door Texas getting any showers at all
