Odile's Visit Was Sprinkly and Brief: What Would Pat Robertson Say?

So this morning, the weather people came clean ... On KVOA New 4 Tucson's Facebook page, Jeff Beamish tried to explain it all away with science:

Meteorologist Jeff Beamish here. Yep, we were wrong Tucson & we're not afraid to admit it. For transparency's sake, here's an explanation of what happened...

Odile's remnants took an unexpected 70 mile shift southeast, putting the 2-5" rainfall amounts over Santa Cruz & Cochise Counties.

All those very important Pima County public information media alerts and planning, and those sandbags. Frankly, I think the county lucked out so it wouldn't have to explain drainage and infrastructure issues not far from Tucson's own potholes and river streets.

But seriously, Beamish. Science?

If Tucson really wants to examine what happened to our rain-loving city, maybe we need to collectively ask ourselves, "What would Pat Robertson say?"

God didn't want Tucson to have all that rain because it's that liberal lower half?

OK, science wins.
