Roll the dice

Right, we understand not everybody needs rain right now, especially wheat 
farmers. Rain right before harvest-or after it has just begun and/or began (pick
whatever gramatically correct version is, uhhhhhh...correct)-is like a punch to
the old medulla oblongota (and we all know just how painful that can be). And for
those areas that are already saturated, I suggest Gold Bond Medicated Powder...I've
heard it stops itching fast!

Wait, why are we on fungus? How about areas saturated with RAINFALL?

Those areas aren't gonna be welcoming of any new rains either. The flash flood
risk isn't tremendous, but (stop me if you've heard this before) it ain't zero
either.

So the rain isn't ideal, but when is Oklahoma's weather EVER ideal? Oh yeah, 
March 19, 2007...what a day that was! 

And with the rain, as we indicated yesterday, there will be some severe weather,
most likely severe winds but also some hail.

So you still gotta stay weather aware. H2O aware as well.
