Still I wonder, who'll stop the rain?
It's supposed to stop by itself sometime tomorrow, which is fine with me: we're getting a decent soaking.
Still, this hardly means an end to the drought. The last month we had with average rainfall or above was August. Since then:
September: 1.89 inches (average 3.84)
For a period when we should have had 15.86 inches of rain, we got 4.09. (All figures from Will Rogers World Airport; at Wiley Post Airport, which is closer to where I live, we've had 3.89.)
So yesterday's 1.61 inches, impressive as it sounds, plus whatever we get today and tomorrow, likely won't make that much difference: the statewide burn ban remains in effect.Posted at 5:56 PM to Weather or Not
