I'm hoping nothing is left of Chris once it makes it over the mountains of Cuba! More promising outlook today than yesterday morning that's for sure.

If its just a rain event we'll take it, its been so long I forgot what a raindrop feels like around here lol. The perfect scenario is go in below Brownsville and then all the rain come across the border and gives about 10 - 15" spread out over a week or so.

With all the publicity this one is creating, we'll have Katrina scam moochers screaming for some kind of $$$$"s in mental aid even if if fizzles out!
