It's Raining Tweets: Rain or Sun, No One Seems Happy with Houston Weather
Everyone on Twitter in Houston last year: "This heat and lack of rain sucks." Everyone on Twitter in Houston this year: "This rain sucks!"

There's an old saying, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait." Last year, we suffered through the most miserable drought in recorded history. We had like 200 straight days with no rain and temperatures in the 100s, plus a plague of locusts and one day where my face literally melted off my skull. In short, it sucked.
Governor Perry had people praying for rain. Well, I guess those prayers were answered and in typical "Houston's weather is the suckiest suck that ever sucked" fashion, locals are pissed and they've taken to Twitter to talk about it. Here are some we found amusing.
