Have You Ever Seen the Rain by Credence Clearwater Revival is one of the great weather songs of all time (although in the song, rain is probably used metaphorically) and it just seems perfect for today.
One of our readers brought up the possibility that some of the moisture from this ongoing storm originates with the Gulf of Mexico. I may take a closer look at this today, but I did want to point out the tremendous plume of high precipitable water that wraps around the cyclone from the Gulf of Mexico, into the High Plains, across Montana and Idaho, and then into northern Utah. Incredible!
