Yeah, It's Not Even A Good Thunderstorm To Us . . .

. . . but I feel pretty comfortable in saying that this is the first time in my life that a hurricane ring brought rain down on Wise County.

Earlier this morning I watched an episode of Family Guy- the one where Quagmire is narrating the thoughts in his head and he says,"I'm boring myself. Maybe I'll listen to some music." and then Eddie Rabbitts I Love A Rainy Night starts playing in his head.

Now, I can't get that stupid song out of my mind no matter what I do. I've pulled up other music, watched an episode of Bones, watched old music videos on Youtube, I feel like I'm going crazy. I want to gut shoot myself.

I'm reaching out here. Please help.

Signed going out of my ever lovin Rainy Night mind in Weatherford.

Like most libs you have forgotten the facts--- Rita -- she dumped a whopping 1/2". c.o.c.-2

Actually, it's happened several times in the past 40 years or so.

Try singing Styx "I'm Sailing Away". You will have that one stuck in your head, but at least it's not Eddie Rabbit.

Authorities in the Houston area are advising residents to stay tuned to the TV and use the internet to stay abreast of when their power might be restored. Can anyone think of why that plan is not going to work all that well?

".....well it makes me high, yeah, I love a rainy night..."

Did anyone else notice the small, almost mistlike, rain drops associated with this?

What a bummer. I was expecting more a "tornadic" like situation.

2:17 My guess would be it was discarded as being if nothing else retarded.

Just a thought.

The NWS told people on the coast "Leave or face certain death!"

A lot of people stayed, I think the weather service guys may have candy coated the issue or got too technical for them to understand.

You must be younger than I remember. It rained for the better part of a week in 1960/61 when either Camille or Carla, I don't remeber which one, came through.

Thanks y'all, Rammstein finally did the trick.

I can't understand a got dang they say but, it gets me pumped up and sucks less than Eddie.

When I read RPMs idea of Styx Sailing Away - Christopher Cross Sailing tried to worm its way in- better but, still too stickable in the mind.

I'm better now.

Plenty of Storms have affected North Texas... and plenty of Hurricanes as well... including two unusual Pacific hurricanes that particularly affected Wise County: Norma in 1981 and Fausto in 1996.

Hurricane Norma was "THE" rainmaker for those of you who remember how dry the lake was after the Summer of 1980. You might remember driving across the bridge on 380 and not being able to see any water. I can remember going on vacation in the summer of 1981 and smelling the dead fish when we came back.

But I also remember coming home from school one day in September of 81 and it was raining. It was still raining when Dad woke me up the next day to go look at the water. I said I had to go to school and he said, Nope, school is cancelled. We drove around and looked at Well Locations that were underwater. I also remember seeing water in the lake where there had been none a few days before. 25" of rain.

Good link to historical rain amounts...
