... or, better yet, much ado about nothing.
To hear the local forecasters talk, one would have thought that North Texas was going to float away on all the rain we were supposed to have starting last Saturday. 70% chance of rain! Heavy rain likely! Spotter activation possible!
Then, the usual "oh, sh*t, we don't have a clue" things started happening. Each day we awoke to sun or light clouds only to discover that the serious chance of rain had been pushed back until the next day. Saturday.... dry. Sunday ... dry. Monday ... dry. Finally, yesterday, we got about 20 minutes of rain and maybe a quarter of an inch total precipitation. Not to worry, because Wednesday (the 5th) was going to be "the day" to get that heavy rain.
And, of course, Wednesday arrives, there's nothing on radar, the chance of rain has been pushed down, and after today there's nothing more in the forecast. In the mean time, the sprinklers will have to come back on tomorrow. Sigh.
