It's been raining here since Friday. We've had 3 or 4 inches of rain so far. Now what is left of Hurricane Ike has parked itself atop us, and it is raining and will go on raining--perhaps through tomorrow.
Here's something I do not understand. How can a hurricane take days to come onshore in Texas (when it had 100+ mph winds), and then slide all the way to Michigan overnight and have no wind associated with it at all?
"That's One of the Mysteries," as we Catholics are given to say.
