Rain songs to help you weather the drought

The lower half of the country has been without significant rainfall for so long that when something does fall from the sky, the odds of it coming from the backend of a bird are far greater than those of it being rain. As many as fourteen states are experiencing drought conditions reminiscent of the dust bowl years of the 1930’s. The effects of the drought are far reaching and effect everyone across the nation. Farmers are unable to grow crops or feed their livestock and homeowners faced with mandatory watering restrictions are at risk of having foundation problems as the ground beneath their homes dries up. To make matters worse, this is all happening while unemployment is high and local governments are strapped for cash.
