Unfortunately, North Texas won't see anything from a tropical disturbance in the Gulf. The system likely won't become a depression or tropical storm, but South Texas to the Rio Grande Valley will see some beneficial rain over the next few days. #wfaaweather 

In The Omnivore’s Dilemma, we also need to know about the health of young krill in the wild and what types of food are available to them out there. So we conducted a research cruise in June this year to figure these things out. #TakeoverNSF
