ANCIENT MYTH OF
THE DROUGHT BUSTER
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
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.
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.
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.
