Are the Saharan dust occurrences related to this neutral La Nina/El Nino pattern that we're in?

I just know..it’s gonna fall apart before it gets to my house. Oh well, I’m at Jackson BBQ for the pre-game dinner. If Verlander gets his 200th, I will be happy. :)

I ended up with .40 in the gage this afternoon added to the .55 that fell Tuesday afternoon...so far. I am really pulling for our neighbors across the B/CS, Brenham, Navasota areas. Hopefully mesoscale features that the models tend to miss bring some beneficial rainfall to our Northern SE Texas folk. I know you need it. Friends in Brenham gave up on their garden for the 1st time in 14 years. Sad

We were in Houston today and hit a couple of showers in NW Harris co and Prarie View.

Nada in CLL. Maybe the showers in Waco will slide south.
