Waiting for Rain

The remnants of hurrican ivan are sitting on top of houston right now. For the last three days, even now, the forecasts have called for an 80% chance of thunderstorms; and i'm glad to hear it, but i can't believe it. Normally, as carol has suggested time and time again, my head will begin to split open as the pressure changes and rain starts to fall on the earth. In what is a admittedly unscientific experiment, i am carefully keeping tabs on the weather and my head today, and if how i'm feeling now is any indicator of what the weather will be like, we will get no rain here today ... no matter what the weatherman says.

this isn't good news for me. i didn't water my lawn last night in anticipation of a deluge; my decision didn't sit well with me all night. i went to the noaa.gov site and watched the maps. i stood outside and watched the clear sky, and the windless space around my house: we're not going to get any rain.

I'm at work now, and the radar (and head) is clear as glass. there is sun streaming in through the window in my office and the forecast still reads 80% chance of thunderstorms.

I'm insistent: no rain, not without a headache.

no rain.
