Saturday/ the days are short and wet

It has been a soggy, soggy rain season so far.
Since Oct. 1, some 15 in. of precipitation had been measured at Seattle-Tacoma Airport.
Average for this time of year is 9.37 in. and the record is 16.6 in.

The north of Washington State is under flood watch again. Mesoscale systems are intermediate in scale (areas up to several 100 miles/ km), smaller than synoptic scale systems but larger than microscale systems.
Those time references are Zulu Time.
21Z  = 1 pm Pacific Standard Time (PST);
06Z = 10 pm PST.
Would it not be simpler if the entire world switched to Zulu Time? Zulu Time was called Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) before 1972: the time at the zero meridian in Greenwich, London. Today it is also called Coordinated Universal Time or Universal Time Coordinated (UTC).
