    Default RAIN !!!

    YaaaaaY !!!

    We've had a ridiculously long dry spell here in Western Washington.
    We had NO rain for over 75 days which is practically unheard of. Of
    course it made for a beautiful Summer but it was getting scary dry and
    fires were popping out.

    This is our first rainy weekend..... !!! So glad to see it. I'm
    doing stuff around the house this weekend and making a bit pot of beef
    and barley soup. Smells really good right now.

    Here's the recipe I use with whatever tweaks I do with what I have on
    hand.

    http://hizzoners.com/recipes/soups/1...-a-barley-soup

    I didn't have any leftover pot roast so I started with some chuck cut
    up and browned and
    simmered till pretty tender.

    When we were living in Washington in the late 80s they were in the midst
    of a long drought. As I recall, it lasted around 6 years or so. This was
    funny because we had been told that it would be raining every day. Them
    folks wuz nuts. :-)

    Here in San Diego, we went 138 days, and just got 1/2 inch.

    And THAT long isn't even a record!

    I would miss it, too. We get spells of dry weather during most summers,
    but nothing like that long. And, yes, sounds like a good day for cooking
    comfort food!

    Seattle get less rain than many cities. Most of their rain is in the
    winter.

    I saw that King 5 was going to start reporting @ 4am Mon- guess they
    are expecting some problems with wind, flooding, etc.

    That's true Greg, but we get more rainy days with fewer inches all at
    once. The rain here is heaviest in the Winter months but it is
    usually spread out over the year. When I lived in New Orleans we
    could get 2 inches of rain in an hour. It's like someone turned on a
    faucet. Here we get what I call "she" rain as opposed to "he" rain
    like we got in New Orleans. It's a softer rain but it goes for
    days. We do have drier Summers but this one was ridiculous.

    1. Vancouver. (NOT B.C.) We did have one particularly misty morning in the
    mittle of August, but not more than a trace measured at Pearson Air Park
    (KVUO). Just enough to make the roads look wet and the lawns unmowable.
    They supposedly had about a tenth of an inch in downtown Portland that
    morning, but not here.

    2. Yes and no. There was a particularly nasty fire at a game preserve
    outside Washougal a couple weeks ago, and a bunch of grass fires about the
    area.
