We always get a lot of winter rain from December through February here in the Pacific Northwest. And on Thursday it became official : this 2015-2016 season we are having the wettest winter on record* here in the Pacific Northwest.
*I am steering clear of the word ever, even though some TV news stations have bandied it about. Our rainfall records only go back 122 years to 1894. Earth is some 4.543 billion years old .. and who knows what deluges this spot we know call Seattle might have experienced through the eons?
