I found this article on MSNBC today:

Georgia gets rain after prayer, but not enough
ATLANTA - A storm crashed through the Southeast and brought up to an inch of rain in parts of drought-stricken Georgia, but forecasters said the storm likely did little to ease the state’s historic drought.
The rain late Wednesday and early Thursday brought some precipitation to the parched hills of northern Georgia. The showers began a day after Gov. Sonny Perdue led a prayer service on the steps of the state Capitol to beg the heavens to end the drought.
“Certainly, we’re not gloating about it,” Perdue said from a trade mission in Canada. “We’re thankful for the rain and hopefully it’s the beginning of more. ... Frankly, it’s great affirmation of what we asked for.”

The article goes on to talk about the woes of the drought in the South and the devastation brought on by the aforementioned storm. I commiserate with their plight, as Colorado has suffered drought for many of the last 10 years. I was shocked, however, to learn that the Governor of Georgia has such a direct line to the Guy Upstairs. Who knew?
