There's a very good reason that the small town of Kroner, KS, is known as "ground zero for extreme weather." When Mulder and Scully arrive in Kroner, the village is in the third month of a devastating drought. The locals suspect that the drought is the handiwork of Daryl Mootz (Clayton Rohner), a self-styled rainmaker who is accused of going to horrible extremes to drum up business and push up his asking price. Originally broadcast January 10, 1999, "The Rain King" was written by Jeffrey Bell.
