Yes I know about Washington and Oregon rain grew up and live 25 out of my 33 years of life in Washingon (Battle Ground) still have web feet to prove it. It just seem so cold and wet this year I am so ready to start my garden and be outside with my animals.
It has been a REALLY long winter. The snow banks are only about 2 feet high now, but we had 2 northeasters in the middle of April last year - the 2 biggest storms of the winter. So we feel we aren't out of the woods until somewhere around June.
