Dry November

I'll start out with a quote from Mark Murray on facebook:
Here's my Weather Extra for today: There have only been 3 Novembers on record without a drop of rain recorded in Austin (1861, 1894 and 1897). We haven't recorded any rainfall in Austin so far this November. And, with rain chances looking slim through the end of the month, it's starting to look like we may have to add November 2012 to that list. Let's hope not...
Really! We were supposed to be switching to an El Niño pattern, but, that apparently didn't take hold -- at least not yet, or is it anymore? Anyway, El Niño normally gives us a wetter than average winter. I suppose we should take heart since winter officially doesn't start for nearly another month.
