Possibly a mild tropical storm aiming at the gulf coast this weekend, but rain will be the issue rather than wind.

the other night, the weather guy here was counting on that to be the Carolinas' drought buster... hopefully it stays on track to do so.

I agree, we have had a dry 6 weeks. We were over 12 inches ahead for the year through mid-August, only to have a smattering of rain since then. We are still nearly 10 inches ahead for the year, but our yard has been a bit brown.

Prefer rain to snow;

The problem, as mentioned in the article, is that it's moving very fast and with areas that are already in drought (with rock-hard dirt ground), the pouring rain is just gonna run off (which causes other problems). What you need is a slow-moving system with light rain, not a fast moving torrential storm.

Any prayers you offer will be representative of the state you support

Very narrow cone. It's my understanding that the bulk of rain/wind will be on the south and east side of the storm:
