It's been a dry, dry year in Turlock, and some farmers have begun to pray for rain.
A group of concerned farmers waved signs reading “Pray for Rain” at a Turlock Irrigation District meeting Wednesday night, held to discuss the upcoming irrigation season. Other farmers sold the signs outside, for display in yards and orchards.
The signs bear the bible verse 1 Thessalonians 5:17, reading "Pray without ceasing."
The entire month of January was dry in Turlock, until Thursday morning came around. Just .27 inches of precipitation fell Thursday, according to TID.
