It is God who determines if the land is made fruitful by rain and dew or flooded and frozen by thunderstorms and frost.
Job 38:25-30Â (KJV)
25Â Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
26Â To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
27Â To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
28Â Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
29Â Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
30Â The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
