Breach of forecast

If weather prediction is an imprecise art, then NOAA shouldn't claim "100%" chance of heavy rain. Because in our little spinoff of Jackson, we didn't get any heavy rain last night -- hardly any rain at all.

Tropical Storm Lee has been a slacker in these parts. Or the anti-moisture force field protecting my grass from precipitation is stronger than I'd guessed. The guys at the National Weather Service are probably holding a meeting right now: "There it is again, see? The storm reaches these coordinates and just ... parts and goes around."

... Of course, it started raining 45 minutes after I posted this. Still, although the yard got decently soaked, Lee was a bust.
