Expect to see the most unprecedented level of sensationalism surrounding the Texas Hurricane. Heavy Rain
is a key indicator of man made global warming according to folks who believe in that sort of thing. Part of the agenda is to drill it into lay audience's head that it's never happened before. Major hurricanes have impacted this area of the country many times throughout recorded history. The only thing that changes is our sensitivity to it via societal changes AND urbanization. 30" is a lot of rain and it's certainly significant, but "worst ever" is always relative. Don't be fooled by knee jerkers. This is a motivation for me to finish the historical data aspect of Wisconsinwx.com so we can separate sensationalism from factual reality.
