No raindrops on my property in 45 minutes but the revised forecast gives it another 10 minutes.

A for effort. Wind is blowing out of the North temperature has dropped but still no rain. I wondered how this app was going to be smarter than the weather forecasters ;)

Aside from the skill/app... We were taunted with rain in the North Dallas area yesterday as well... no joy. BUt there's hope for some precip tonight... we could use it for sure. Getting dry around here.

I am 60 miles due east of Dallas.  I thought for sure it was going to rain  :-\  Got dark, windy, big drop in temperature.  Then it just skirted off to the NW :(

All hell broke loose in Sachse. It was a monsoon at my house.

Winds must have been 60mph.

I guess a lot of us live in Texas huh?  :D

The odds are pretty good there are more of us... Some hiding in the shadows still... I'm right south of Sachse in Garland... All we got was winds... Last night was bust as well... no water from the skies. Although it appears to have rained on the other side of my back fence last night (Neighbors actually turned on their sprinkler system for the first time in 3 years...)
When I water my yard I have to over-water to keep the neighbors' yards from leaching the water out of my yard completely... Damn poachers!

My kind of day (or night, especially night!)....just as long as no one gets hurt!
