Looks like it’s going to miss us again. Heavy rain south moving east. One weather forecast had the wherewithal to say watch for flooding today. Yeah right…. I’ve never seen anything like this, drought is usually a regional thing, right? We have an circle with about a 35-40 mile radius, perhaps a little farther to the NW than other points on the compass, that cannot get rain. It’s such a small area that it doesn’t even show up on the current drought monitor map as even being uncommonly dry, wrong!! Once again, the rain stayed in the clouds as they passed over and then they are about to open up 50 miles east of us. Looks like MO and AR are about to get another soaking. Such a freaking helpless feeling to see rain so close but so far away. It’s more miserable than the common regional drought by far.
