So, like, do you guys usually live, like, in a complete vacuum?

...and I'm moving to Seattle ASAP. Sometimes this place really freaks me out. Having a clear blue sky with sun every day gets to be like that movie, "Groundhog Day." Every day is the same... AAAAAAAAAAAGHHH!!!

I've been checking MSN's weather ALL DAY...waiting for it. And now, to the west, near CC and SM I see the rain clouds...

Sooo... you'd prefer a place where every day the sky was overcast and the ground damp?

Well, I hear the sun comes through the clouds about twice a year. :)

Yep! I understand. I lived in Aztec territory almost all my life. Then had the audacity to move to the Pac. NW! (BTW it is actually sunny here!)

Was sunny.

Okay, Pacific NW is lovely during summer and the rain is rarely ever bad, just constant 9 months out of the year. Last year we went 45 days straight with rain. No break. Rain, all the time.

But the summers are indeed nice and sunny...

Yes, the rain does drive you a bit batty after a while. By March I am going loony! I've even washed my car in the rain! But it is the sacrifice you make for all the greenery! BTW, Im a bit south of you. Still sunny, and I am stuck inside with a sick toddler. Gah!

It's raining here too (cats and dogs), but that's because we only got half the new roof on! Once we get the other half on, it'll stop again.

LOL for two reasons
I understand, we are still trying to finish the roof on our wood shed while the weather has been raining off and on.

and because it is "raining catsndogs"

It's rainy season here and it rains everyday at 6pm. Sometimes in the middle of the night too. Today it was sunny and close to 100 degrees, right now it's cloud and rainy, and the sun will most likely come out again before it sets. I'm from the Midwest and cannot get used to this. I miss fall.

With the hurricanes a couple weeks ago it rained for two solid days.

"The rain may never fall til after sundown... July and August must not be too hot..."

Rep for anyone who gets that.

Have you ever noticed when it hasn't rained in a while, say a long while, that it makes you long for rain without realizing what you are wishing for? And when it comes, finally, in a downpour that refuses to be ignored, jagged lightening and thunder overhead, you stop what you are doing to have a better look, drawn to a window, watching sweet rain embracing a parched earth hungry for moisture, and you feel yourself drawn up, alive, and turn the knob to walk into that cold wet welcome, and realize you will never be this way again, face up, the drops flashing past stars and stinging your cheeks as the earth softens beneath you, creating a cast you sink into and never want to leave.

Something even more wonderful happened! I glanced outside just as the sun was setting, and there was a HUGE rainbow across the sky! It was beautiful.

I am visiting from Florida, and brought the rain with me. So says Kadea. :)

I want rain. We've had droughts all summer, interspersed with drizzles and full-on five minute downpours. We've had power outages and disgusting, fungi-full water from the lack of it. We've had to limit our water usage to preserve water. We've had to buy a new breaker because a storm knocked ours out.

It's been a weird, hot summer here in TN. But...I think it's raining now. Huh.
