It is drying out, the grass is growing, and the prayers of the trees for water was granted. Today is pleasant & sunny with afternoon highs 91.2 °F | 32.9 °C. A few nights ago the sunset colored the sky a deep red-orange. The farthest bands of Tropical Depression Fay seem to have stalled at the E Arkansas border. Must be the anti-matter cloud again Φ

Nice sunny day so far. Pleasant temps, high relative humidity, and the recent deluge from the past 3 days in normally dry August will green the grasses, recycle yinyang the water from the ground back to the sky, bloom the roses, rinse the gritty streets, flush out the sewage pipes under the manhole covers... why are they called manholes? shame on you

Let it B then. Φ

1.22in / 31.0mm rain fell overnight to add on to yesterday's total. Raining again steadliy 15:55 UTC. The 'prayers' of the trees were granted —after waiting nearly 30 days. Science teaches us chemical messenger agents are released by trees which facilitate in the formation of rain clouds. This astonishing fact makes one wonder, though. Did the trees 'pray' in July? Also, which trees and where? Perhaps in the National Forests north where more live it was the right time. And we to the south with less trees benefit from the density from the larger forests. But then let us reason. Let us make sense! Observing Nature can make one wonder, and be surprised when the mysterious is the norm and the apparent causalities are merely back-effects. More realistic is the snapshot of an equilibrium with nearly infinite stages. Look into the mirror. You are part of Nature, too...1.72in / 43.7mm new rainfall total and 98% Humidity. We have a flash flood watch now in effect until Wed. Φ

The hailstorm bypassed this area late last evening, along with the thunderstoms. However it did rain, starting @(at) 9AM. Daily precipitation total as of this writing is 1.19in / 30.2mm, which more than doubled the monthly amount so far. Seems to be a mystery why the doppler radar often shows a storm's heading directly this way and before it arrives somehow it shifts and/or fades away. Maybe lower elevation is a factor, but it is not impossible something mysteriously hidden, a force of incredible power...like a small anti-matter cloud cloaked from visibility inside a containment field... causes some atmospheric turbulence. If this is one of these "Star Trek" fantasies then it is. I believe there is something "out there" beyond our imaginations which is programmable and unknown.

It did rain today and the question is Why? Extending this line of reasoning further one might think of an Alien Spacecraft hiding or even blame Area 51 because "they wouldn't tell us even if it was true!" But who are they? There is evidence of antimatter in the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Could it also exist here? Remember, The Truth is Out There and The Eyes of Truth are always watching...you. Φ

It rained! 0.48in | 12.2mm in 90 minutes earlier. Overnight low of 70.9°F | 21.6°C together with the much cooler daytime temps will allow trees and gardens more available moisture(H₂O reuptake). Prior rainfall since 1 July(37d) was negligible: 0.25in | 6.35mm with the average 24h temps higher than normal. This blog may update as local weather tends to change... Φ

The small storms approaching SE Oklahoma this afternoon, WNW of Ward Lake wrang out a damp washcloth, as far as needed precipitation was concerned. The trees want rain and some lawns show the typical August brownout. Let's hope the 50% chance of rain tomorrow are more than a "maybe". Φ
