Those of us who have been living in Texas recently know that June was a great month for weather (if you share my tastes in weather, anyway) — it’s been cool and rainy for most of the month. Someone told me we got a record amount of rain in Texas for June, actually. That’s all well and good, but given recent events, I’m starting to think my rainmaker powers, identified during high school, have returned.
That’s because yesterday in Maryland, particularly up by Baltimore, they got flood-level amounts of rain. There was video all over the news last night of stranded motorists, flooded cars, and more rain on the way today and probably tomorrow. Meanwhile, the Weather Channel tells me the weather in Texas today will be hot (95ish degrees) and sunny. (Incidentally, rain isn’t in the forecast for Denton until Monday, about 36 hours after I return home.)
