There is a rumor that -- if we can trust scientists that such a phenomenon actually can occur -- liquid will fall from the very heavens, tonight or tomorrow.
We appreciate that your skeptical -- How can liquid come down from a cloud? -- because it's not something that has happened in recent memory.
But elders talk of the time when such things happened in Houston with regularity, so we guess anything's possible.
To mark the occasion, should it happen, we want your best torrential-downpour pictures of the event. A few scattered drops in a puddle won't cut it. (Wet t-shirt pictures caused by this so-called "rain," however, will no doubt be judged favorably.)
Send them to the Houston Press Flickr page by 5 p.m. tomorrow; the best one will get a pass for two to the May 23, 7:30 p.m. preview screening of the Hangover 2, at the Marq*E.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
