Wrong on This One

When I was working on WZDM for Ed Ballinger last week, I tried really hard to not mess it up. I checked the weather forecast numerous times throughout each shift, knowing that the National Weather Service is all over this weather thing. And when I left late Friday afternoon, I knew the weekend was going to be hot, but not much rain in the forecast.Once again, trust in someone else failed. I have never driven through as heavy a rain as I drow through Friday night between the White River and St. Thomas. then there was the downtpours in Vincennes Saturday. I was out of town, but the radar, puddles in my yard, and a tramatized dog were all reminders that the forecast let me down.
Oh. You didn't get a drop all weekend? The forecast was perfect? Your fields are dry enough for wheat harvest? Never mind. The forecast was perfect. I shouldn't have worried.
