Snookered by Edouard

Sprinkles, mainly sprinkles. We got a quarter inch overnight, most places around here got much less. So much for the hotshot tropical storm. The LCRA’s Bob Rose (whose employers don’t provide him with a permalink) says forecasts of much more didn’t come true because the computer models failed to accurately predict the eastward shift of a high pressure ridge, which drew Edouard’s rain well north of us.

Rose: "This will definitely be a research project to see why almost all of the computer and human solutions missed this forecast track."

Fat lot of good it will do us in the meantime. Although the radar showed a good deal of it went south, as well. At least we had a relatively cool evening last night. Felt cool, anyhow, as the temps dropped into the mid-seventies by dawn. But the drought continues.
