Rain on the horizon?

The weather has been extremely quiet lately in Alabama and so I have I. I apologize for the lack of posts lately but sometimes a well-timed break is good for us in the long run. I have been travelling a lot with my job and keeping up with the undefeated and number two ranked Alabama Crimson Tide quite a bit so far this autumn. I continue to take pictures and I plan on sharing some of the scenes I have encountered on this blog soon.

After Gustav the tropics really settled down and rain has been practically non-existent in Alabama for the past month. Unfortunately the drought has not ended. Every time we take a step forward in our rainfall, we take another step or two back. It looked for awhile like the massive rainfall totals Alabama received from Fay might just break the drought here in Alabama, but we have seen precious few drops since then.

The good news is that we will likely see some significant rain soon. A strong trough will approach Alabama on Wednesday and much of the State could receive at least one-half inch, with more in isolated locations.
