Don the Dud

Many of us were hoping that Tropical Storm Don would bring generous rains to drought-stricken Texas. Unfortunately, the dry air over the Lone Star State, ingested into the storm, caused Don to weaken before even reaching land. There will be some rain from Don but it will not be widespread or heavy.
