The Drought Buster – American Legend

Nebraska, even today has many days where drought may be looming. Back in the day when settlers first began to populate the area, the summer months were quite treacherous on the crops and of course on the settlers. The sun would shin and the clouds would very quickly run away without leaving behind even a small drop of rain.

During one of these hot summer days, a man that lived in the area, Febold Feboldson, who was famous for busting droughts, decided he had taken enough of these hot days without any rain. Febold was a Swede that absolutely loved to fish and when there was a drought, there were no fish. This made him very upset. He sat down one day and came up with a way in which to beat this drought.

Febold, as the legend goes, built large bonfires around every lake in the area. He knew if he kept the fires very hot, the water in the lakes would evaporate and form clouds. He would carry wood to each bonfire and kept them so hot the lakes had to evaporate. Before long, there were many clouds in the sky. The clouds he had created from the lakes began to pour down rain upon the region, which was a delight to many of the settlers. However, they still had their complaints. They may have enjoyed the rain and their crops would grow, but they no longer had a place to swim.
