What did the Seattlite say to the Pillsbury Dough Boy?
"Nice tan, guy!"
Summer in Seattle starts on July 5th and ends promptly on September 5th. It rains for the rest of the year. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. All of you Texans and Californians can stay where you are. It takes me long enough to get where I'm going as it is.
Actually, it rains more in Portland, OR than it does here. It just rains a little more often. It actually has to be RAINING for us to call it rain. It takes more than a few drops out of the sky to get me to put a jacket on.
I love living here. No tornadoes, no dust storms, no ice storms, no raging wildfires, no blizzards. The worst we have gotten in the 22 years I've been here is a 112 mph windstorm. big deal. Oh, Mt. St. Helens was interesting, but we didn't get ANY fallout from that.
No, for me, it's mostly worrying about keeping water as far away from the foundation as possible.
