It’s still unseasonably warm in Austin, but at least the season has changed. While it remains very dry here, major storms have been quite visible to our north and south of late. So, it seems that October is bringing us a normal summer pattern, and it’s raining a more or less normal amount in Texas. Far from enough to bust the drought, but not threatening us with turning into Arizona.
We’ll see if the double-dip La Nina makes for another severe outlier of a summer next year.
Also, it looks like Rick Perry is no more serious about becoming US President than Sarah Palin.
Also, occupy Austin is happening. I am nervous about actively supporting the Occupy thing. Since I still hold Canadian citizenship, it seems far safer for me to go up to Toronto and occupy it. But I’ve been very impressed with the way these guys are managing things; it seems the only people advocating foolishness at these groups are pro-corporate agents provocateurs.
