It looks like Houston will finally get hit with some serious rain -- the kind that comes, in spots, with nickle-sized hail, as happened in College Station.
Let's face it: We need it.
While you're enjoying this strange phenomenon, which should begin about 2 p.m. or so, don't forget to take pictures.
Post them to the Houston Press Flickr page -- your best gullywasher shots, or anything that says "rain!" -- and the best will get passes for two to a preview screening of Hangover 2 at the Marq*E theater May 23 at 7:30 p.m.
