Sea(ttle), it’s not so rainy


At last, the results of a scientific study furnish proof that it doesn’t rain in Seattle as much as you might think.  The honor of the rainiest city in the United States goes to Mobile, Alabama and just about any city along the Gulf Coast and Florida, the so-called "Sunshine State."  Here’s the list of the top ten cities according to WeatherBill, a research firm:
 
  • Mobile, Alabama–67 inches average annual rainfall; 59 average annual rainy days
  • Pensacola, Florida–65 inches average annual rainfall; 56 average annual rainy days
  • New Orleans, Louisiana–64 inches average annual rainfall; 59 average annual rainy days
  • West Palm Beach, Florida–63 inches average annual rainfall; 58 average annual rainy days
  • Lafayette, Louisiana–62 inches average annual rainfall; 55 average annual rainy days
  • Baton Rouge, Louisiana–62 inches average annual rainfall; 56 average annual rainy days
  • Miami, Florida–62 inches average annual rainfall; 57 average annual rainy days
  • Port Arthur, Texas–61 inches average annual rainfall; 51 average annual rainy days
  • Tallahassee, Florida–61 inches average annual rainfall; 56 average annual rainy days
  • Lake Charles, Louisiana–58 inches average annual rainfall; 50 average annual rainy days

Seattle’s neighbor, Olympia, ranked 24th on the list with 59 inches of rain each year.  Seattle is not far behind.  While it may not be haven for sun worshippers, Seattle isn’t as wet as it seems.  It just seems that way.  Reputation means everything.
