the long, steady, slow, dripping rain total in the past 24 hours is 1.6 inches. It is still raining lightly at 10:50 AM Central Time. At least there was no flooding and the dry water table underground has refilled slightly.

No this is not Mars. It is the Moon during total eclipse. The eclipse is sometimes quite light as the Dec 20, 2010 photo shows.
• Today was the warmest day on record for Dec 21st in the NWS Shreveport forecast area.
• The Winter Solstice occurs tonight at 5:38 PM, the shortest day, and conversely, the longest night of the year.
• It may snow for Christmas
From the NWS today: Interestingly...model consensus among both the GFS and Euro place the surface low in the Gulf of Mexico by late Friday night. This...combined with surface cold air intrusion across the region and an upper level shortwave sliding east may allow for the possibility of wrap around precipitation in the form of snow flurries by daybreak Christmas morning along the Interstate 30 corridor.
Also this at 4PM: Will also be keeping an eye on an outside possibility of snow becoming mixed with the rain early Christmas day for portions of southeast Oklahoma...southwest Arkansas and north central Louisiana. As the storm system moves away...colder air will filter in from the north as high pressure builds. As temperatures fall below freezing...a few of the residual rain showers may begin to switch over to light snow around sunrise.
Finally now, on Christmas Eve the latest possibity of any kind of snow has changed to none. Still we will wait and see which way the winds blow and how cold the air is.

Overnight Forecast Low Temps After Midnight
Monday AM Lows around 20
Tuesday AM Lows around 20
Wednesday AM Lows around 20 Chance of snow 40%
Thursday AM Lows around 20
Some of the forecasted lows since the Cool Canadian air began 2-3 weeks ago to bring lower temps overnight have actually been that low. About 5-10 degrees higher in general. So, hope for a little thicker frost on the ground Wednesday morning — which would imply it snowed.
Update: Tuesday Morning Dec 7 2010 NWS Forecast Discussion
[ excerpt related to this evening and overnight into Wednesday morning specifically about my area ]
I would not be surprised to see snow accumulations in
5" to 1" category along and north of a line from Clarksville
Texas to Texarkana Arkansas to near Monroe Louisiana before the
system quickly exits the region Wednesday morning.
