Rainiest City, Seattle, Really?

“Seattle is rainy and cold; and if it’s not raining, it’s windy, specially now and winter, maybe spring.” the shuttle driver said to me.

It was like that last week.

It was so green and colorful that makes you forgive (no, you don’t forget) the wind, rain, and the cold air.

Autumn colors in Seattle are magic.

This beautiful rose was showered by the light rain.

One person can make a difference, and she did for her community.

Most of my photos of this trip were taken with iPhone. I knew my Canon wouldn’t be able to tolerate the constant rain.

Is Seattle the rainiest city in the U.S.? Not even close…

According to the CityLab: Seattle gets 37.5 inches of precipitation during an average year, a drop in the rain barrel compared to 126.7 inches in Hilo, Hawaii, and 141.3 inches in Ketchikan, Alaska. There are 49.7 inches in Atlanta, for instance, 49.8 in Houston, 44.7 in New York, and 41.5 in Washington, D.C.

But, but… Seattle has 154 rainy days. Here are the top 10 rainiest cities by inches and days.

Thank you for visiting. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

  1. Ah, good ‘o New York. My state! Yep I can attest we do get a lot of precipitation. This year has been the exception to that though, with severe droughts. Gorgeous pictures, Amy!! Love the moss growing on the stones. Awesome shots! Thank you for sharing! ❤

      • YAY for rain, Amy! Thank goodness you finally got some! Happy Thanksgiving, dear friend. I am putting a post up tomorrow but will have comments closed. I’m taking a few days off from blogging. I’ve been very involved with a sick friend and his family and today he is finally home from the hospital. I’ve not been blogging as I normally do either. Things should get better when I come back, probably next Monday. SO much to celebrate this year for Thanksgiving!! (((HUGS))) ❤

  2. Your photos here are really artistic, Amy. I’ve spent many days in Seattle, in all seasons, and once you don your raincoat and give in to the rain, it’s a lovely day. Due to the topic, I love the mossy photos here especially. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Amy~~
