Disregard physics my ass.
With a strong enough electrical current, the bonds between the hydrogen and oxygen will break, creating a very flammable mix of gasses that, not only would seem to be on fire while separating (due to the high amounts of energy) but that could also be set on fire rather easily.

Rain, as defined by it's wikipedia page is liquid water in the form of droplets.
Liquid water is in no way flammable. In the situation you describe, the rain will have moved from being rain to Oxygen gass (O2) and Hydrogen gass, one of which is highly flammable (Hydrogen), and with the oxygen supply readily availably and the energy this process will take to happen, it is (as you describe it) inevitably going to ignite.

But that's not the point. You may set fire to hydrogen, but not rain. Rain is liquid water, and non-flammable (if that's not a word, it is now). Therefore, we can say say she's disregarding physics.

If only I was smart enough to make a scientifically-relevant comment
