“We came out here today basically asking god to bless us with rain,” said Basma Marmosh of the Muslim Community of Folsom. “It’s something very small and basic.”
The light rain occurred as members of the Muslim Community of Folsom prayed on a tarp they placed next to the east side of Folsom Lake.
Even though, sprinkles fell at the lake Saturday, they did not amount to significant rainfall, according to the San Juan Water District.
Last week, the district asked customer to stop outdoor water usage due to the ongoing drought. The district is now considering declaring a water emergency.
