Rain, rain, go away.
Surprisingly, the amount of rain we've had so far this year is not the most abnormal weather statistic on the precipitation pattern over the past few months- the number of days we've had rain is. We've had 33 days of rain since May 1, when 20 days is closer to average, according to the National Weather Service Forecast Office.
Still, Tulsa has had over 15 inches of rain since May 1. That makes this rainy season the sixth wettest ever.
Yuck. A big group of Tulsans and I planned to head to Philbrook after work Friday to catch a showing of Breakfast at Tiffany's on the lawn. I even considered making a huge basket of fried chicken. Unfortunately, the event is likely to be rained out - unless "rain likely" and "60%" is local TV news talk for partly cloudy. We shall see. If the sun doth shine, come join us! We'll be in the north garden.
You know...maybe gray skies aren't always so bad after all:
