Come on, Arlene

Tropical Storm Arlene has made landfall in Mexico. The area is parched from a severe drought, so although there is potential for destructive mudslides in the mountainous regions, the rain is welcome.  Just yesterday, NPR did a story about the shrinking of Lake Travis near Austin.
In Austin, theyre praying for a hurricane, a nice slow moving category one or two, or a tropical storm, that makes its way up to Austin and then stalls out over the Texas hill country.
Arlene is too far south to do Lake Travis any good.  It is only the southern tip of Texas that may see rain from this storm.  Maybe next time, Austin.
