The Rain That Never Fell

Rick Perry appeared at Liberty University on September 14 and discussed the ways in which he feels his god has communicated with him.

"On the fifth day of August 1978 it rained 30 inches in 24 hours"

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the total precipitation that day for Abilene, one hour away from Paint Creek and the closest recording point, was 0.01 inches. In fact, the record rainfall for one day in Abilene is just 6.30 inches, and 37.22 inches is the record for an entire year.

The fires currently burning in Texas must be a message to "get out now...and go to Washington".
