Pray for Rain

A common and oft-justified sentiment in southwestern Oklahoma, this sign manifest authentic desperation following the drought of 2012, which lasted through wintertime and into spring 2013 here.   Alas, this high-based storm’s heavy-precip core would miss this spot and the city of Altus, just to the south, leaving a narrow swath of mud and puddles amidst the otherwise still-parched landscape.  Regardless, the storm soon would yield some beautiful arcus formations before its deep-twilight demise.
