We get this all the time in the south.

"We're in a drought. BUT ..... all the rain that we just received isn't the right kind of rain. It's (too hard, too soft, not enough, too much, too fast, in the wrong place, etc, pick one)."

There's just no making people happy, sometimes. What the heck, at least they didn't blame Global Warming.

I know what you mean. Here in Virginia, we were in a moderate drought during the summer and well into the fall. The local weatherfolk never let us forget it, and when rain finally came along at the end of the year, they immediately started griping and moaning if the rain didn’t confine itself to the workweek.

You’re right. It’s never enough and the wrong kind. Thankfully, the LCRA (river authority) has finally woken up to the fact that sending precious water down to rice farmers in south Texas might just be the wrong thing to do. Uh, helloooo, trying to maintain wet rice patties in south Texas when there’s been a drought for years and years??? That makes no sense.
