Without fail, 24-36 hours after "nothing" happens the rain comes. Never seen a situation where that didn't happen this year.
Regarding the thinking person thing, the higher-ups have been conditioning us that our observations mean nothing, that the Scientific Method is not for regular people, only for government and corporate-sanction research bodies. If a certain natural supplement is discovered by one of "us" to correct an illness or problem, it's automatically written-off as a placebo effect (or worse). Nevermind there are plenty of naturopaths and normal people who discover these things by trial-and-error in a methodical way, just like scientists do.
We have elitism of thought in our society. If you're one of the "Little People" you aren't entitled to discovery or even to enter the debate. Your observations mean nothing. You need to do what they tell you to do - anything else is invalid and void.
