Collecting the animals, two by two

The biggest obstacle to taking this job in the Seattle area was overcoming the notion that it rains here all of the time.

"Doesn't happen", one person told me.

"We just say that to scare away tourists", said another.

So when we got here, the weather was beautiful. Really, the later Summer and Fall were pretty spectacular. It never got above 80 and we had lots of sunshine, or at least, very pretty cloud action.

Then winter hit. And as of today, we're at 25 straight days of rain. The whole frickin' upper Northwest is washing away. Schools are closed, trees are falling, mudslide is making it so it takes over an hour and a half to get to work.

The record for consecutive rainfall in Seattle is 33 days. The weathermen here are VERY excited.

I know the sun is up there. I miss it.


  • There is a reason that Starbucks was started in Seattle... People need an artifical boost, since they never see the sun!!! =)

  • Doesn't seem that bad to me. I'm living in downtown Bellevue, and there are no mudslides here (unless maybe you drink 'em). Of course, I missed ten solid days of rain when I went home for Xmas, so there ya go. As long as it doesn't rain in Azeroth, I'm fine and dandy.

  • we are about to set a record for the most amount of days without rain.

    maybe if seattle and phoenix could talk, we could send you some dry weather and you could send us some rain.

    the smog is free
