Halacha - Morid HaTal
Submitted by YW  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: If you said morid hatal 90 times over 30 days which creates a certain chazaka, then one mistake will not invalidate it. And even if one said morid hatal 90 times at once which is a mochlokes if it helps, still the vast majority of poskim including the Shulchan Aruch and Rema consider it to be a full fledged chazaka. However, this all applies to one who either davens nusach Ashkenaz or lives in Eretz Yisroel and says morid hatal, but someone who does not say morid hatal in the summer has a much bigger problem because a number of poskim say that one cannot create a chazaka not to say certain words. Therefore, it seems to me that if one said mechaye meisim ata 90 times together without the words morid hatal then there are grounds to be strict.
