Today is August 28, and it hasn’t rained here in Conway, AR, the whole month. I’d call this a drought. Yet certain neighboring states have been getting way too much rain this summer — such as Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. They’ve been having problems with flooding. And they’re just a few hundred miles away. Why would they be getting so much more rain than normal? Is it global warming? Is it El Nino? Some people want you to blame these crazy hypotheses. But I’ve already given you the answer — obviously they’ve been getting our rain. So the proper question is, why are they getting our rain?
