Rain? I'll believe it when I see it.

Back when Hurricane Edouard was swirling in the Gulf the forecasters were telling us we were going to get boatloads of rain.  After a sweltering dry summer us Austinites were all, "Bring it On!"

We got nothing.

Now, they were forecasting that Hurricane Ike was going to slam in to Texas and head straight for us and we were going to get tons of rain.  Again, we are all, "Bring it On!"   Seriously, Lake Travis needs some filling, so yeah, be gentle to the coast, but then bring us some water over here!  Now they are saying the hurricane is going to hit the coast further north and then turn straight north right when it hits and go east of Austin.  It's a decent sized storm so it could still get us, or heck the models could be wrong and we could still get slammed. 

But for now, I'll believe it's going to rain when I am standing outside and getting wet.  (and one of my children isn't holding a hose)
