Seattle – Record Breaking Rain?

Schulte sent me this link with the subject line “hahahahaha”. Having lived here for a whopping 4 months, I think the rain talk is pretty overblown. It rains often but it doesn’t rain constantly. So, it doesn’t surprise me that we’ve had measurable rainfall every day for the last 22 days (and counting) but the fact is that it’s not raining all day every day. Yesterday sucked because it rained on my walk to work and my walk home, but that’s just unfortunate timing. It’s off and on.

This was an interesting quote from the article:

Though Seattle is famous for its rain, the city’s average annual rainfall from 1970 to 2000 was 37.07 inches, compared to 49.71 inches for New York City.
