Rain!
 
I think I saw some from a distance. Not sure. Forgot what it looks like.

Konaborne 12-03-2011 08:47 PM

I can send you some. Too much here.

It's said the highest suicide rate (per capita) in the US in in Eugene, Or. They have the highest rainfall count. I would have thought you guys got more rain than any of the mainland states.

Actually, Mt. Waialeale on Kauai is the wettest place on Earth.
:cool:

The entire Pacific NW is like that... all the bridges have "Don't jump, call 1-800..." It's almost comical if it wasn't deeply disturbing...

Yea, the PNW does have a lot of suicides, I just call that darwinism at work.

I swear, I must have brought the PNW weather with me when I flew back in on Wednsday.

Its been raining non stop down here in Tucson for like 2-3 days now.

We get loads of rain too .

I guess that's why it's called rainforest

PcBuilder14 12-03-2011 09:01 PM

In about another 15-30 minutes we'll probably get some rain for a few hours. We need as much we can get after how dry it was for about 5 months.

Joe D 12-03-2011 09:02 PM

We have up to 8" scheduled for tomorrow

It's such an odd concept for me , a couple hours of rain .

We get spells were it rains everyday for weeks .

We broke a record a couple years back , 52 straight days of rain

Konaborne 12-03-2011 09:04 PM

52? damn.
We had 40 straight about 5 years ago.

OZ, yea your weather is the same as ours in Washington (when I am there). I crack up down here in Az when people freak out about this rain and occasional snow. I miss driving around in the snow and ice. I used to go up to the mountains just to go play in the snow and ice.

lol right? (ignore I just went to 4peaks for snow haha). Nah, it's cool in the desert though because it's so rare... the PNW it's pretty much "ah yea this again" lol

PcBuilder14 12-03-2011 09:09 PM

Wow, the most I remember it raining here is for a whole day or two.

Or just " at least it's not snowing "

Seriously though , I think the worst weather to work in ( outside ) is when it's right at freezing , windy and raining .

Nothing worse .

122F direct sun on a roof in AZ... that's way worse. lol

Or any of the soldiers in the middle east working in a tank where it's 180F inside with 8 other guys...
