Well....the storms looked pretty positive on the doppler radar last night - but much to my dismay, The Field Lab Vortex held firm. Just as I started to get some sprinkles, the thunderstorms pouring out of the north died out. Had gusts up to 45mph after the fact which made it a bit difficult to nod off. Checked the rain gauge this morning...only .02" and seven dead bugs. I don't think that really counts as rain. Unfortunately, the accompanying lightning started a new batch of wildfires in the Ft. Davis area.
