It finally rained.
We finally received some much needed rain here in Central Texas and the Austin area. Although it won’t make up for the current drought conditions in the area, it certainly helps. This afternoon’s storm total image from the National Weather Service shows
After I got home, I saved a Wunderground.com image of the NEXRAD Local Radar at the time I took the photo. You can see the red radar echo of the cloud formation I captured in the photograph just below where it says “Phoenix” on the map.
For people like us, watching weather is entertainment. The Weather Channel is standard fare for us and can be watched for hours on end. You can imagine my surprise when I realized the Weather Channel might be taking advantage of my addiction to anything weather-related.
Does anyone know if there’s a 12-step program for people in our condition?
Perhaps our only hope is a weather intervention.
