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! 🙂
