Bring on the rain: How do you tempt Mother Nature?

Desperate situations require desperate measures. With an estimated 30% of the western Canadian prairies under significant drought threat, farmers in the southern area of the prairies are very concerned about crop and pasture conditions.

Mother Nature may have a death grip on the rain tap, but is there something that you can do about it?

We all have our favourite way of baiting Mother Nature to drop rain on us. Some people wash their truck, some leave fertilizer truck tarps open, some plan a camping trip, and others just pray. As you can see below, I have been leaving my Jeep outside with the top off with no results up until now.
