God Answered Georgia Rain Prayers!

No seriously, he did. A day after Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue led prayers for rain, there were huge storms in Northern Georgia that dumped an inch of rain. Perdue declared:

“We’re thankful for the rain and hopefully it’s the beginning of more. … Frankly, it’s great affirmation of what we asked for.”

Of course, this might be a slight problem:

The rainfall was likely not enough the ease the drought, forecasters said.

“The ground probably sucked it all up,” said Vaughn Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Peachtree City. “The ground is so dry, I seriously doubt if any of the lakes rose any.”

So apparently, God is just a tease. This may be an even bigger problem:

In Tennessee’s Marion County, the roof of a Baptist church was heavily damaged in the storms, said Jeremy Heidt of the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. Three children were hurt by flying glass and were taken to hospitals, said Heidt.

Maybe there was a gay person at that church or something.
