Georgia’s 'Unorthodox' Response To A Drought

Georgia is in the midst of an awful drought, so Gov. Sonny Perdue (R) has decided to, well, just take a look.

What to do when the rain won’t come? If you’re Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, you pray.

The governor will host a prayer service next week to ask for relief from the drought gripping the Southeast.

“The only solution is rain, and the only place we get that is from a higher power,” Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley said on Wednesday.

It’s the 21st century. I just thought I’d mention that.

The governor’s rain-prayer service is scheduled for Tuesday outside the state Capitol. If weather.com is right, they’ll have to move it inside — the forecast is for rain.
