Tropical storm teases parched Texas, but fizzles
Tropical storm Don is over. There will be some lingering scattered showers, but South Texas' best hope for substantial rain in months has collapsed on approach, wetting the area with less than an inch of rain and strong breezes.

Cotton growers who scrambled to harvest in recent days, but still left the bulk of their fluffy bolls in the field can breathe a sigh of relief. For other farmers and ranchers, it's back to watching the skies longingly for rain.
