Texas-Size Leak

They’re rioting in Africa
They’re starving in Spain
There’s hurricanes in Florida
And Texas needs rain

         — Sheldon Harnick, Merry Minuet

As in, this part of Texas needs only about 2 more inches over the rest of the month to set a new record for the wettest May in recorded history. At the rate our skies have been leaking the past few days, that should take no more than an hour or two. Luckily, I know how to hold my breath underwater.

But I should find a spare minute to turn off the notifications from my Night Sky app. At least, until they improve their notification sensitivity so the app only bothers me on those rare days when the stargazing conditions are expected to be fair or better. As is, they’ve been notifying me something I already know.
