Dry weather

By Tony W. Cartledge BR Editor

Here's my contribution to "everybody talking about the weather," and an interesting twist on "nobody doing anything about it."

The central part of North Carolina is experiencing its driest period in recent history. The central piedmont is suffering from what the weather gurus call "exceptional drought," surrounded by a substantial area suffering drought conditions ranging from mild to extreme.

It's just plain dry. Even those who can afford the water bill are unable to keep their lawns green in many areas because of town or city enforced water restrictions.

The upside (so long as you don't operate a lawn care service) is that the grass hasn't needed cutting in weeks.

The downside is just about everything else. Crops are dying in the fields, produce is puny, the woods are a tinderbox and dust is everywhere.

I'm sure many folks are praying for rain, and I wondered why those prayers haven't had some result by now.

Then I found out that some visiting Baptists who came to Raleigh for a World Changers mission project had prayed that it wouldn't rain so they could finish roofing a house (see story, page 1). There must be some powerful prayer warriors in that group.

I hope, on their way out of town, they'll remember to cancel that request.
