    HAHAHAHA! I can't share the pain, but let's just say when it DOES rain here it's county wide festival.

    Just started raining! My chickens tell me it's been raining for the past two weeks. You're lucky!

    June 15 is a lucky guess. I'd think July 4. Oh wait... It rained on the 4th last year. LOL.

    I'm finding corvallis to b e a rather rain free place vs north of seattle. :p

    Quote:We had 48 consecutive days last winter. 39 miles upstream along the Columbia at about 8' above sea level.

    There is a very extensive vocubalury here used to describe the common terms "rain" and "wet".

    Ugh, don't remind me that theres a game. The reason I'm NOT going to work this weekend (on campus). Maybe we can cross paths in Albany some time!

    I think two years ago now? It was 102 or something like that consecutive. [​IMG]

    We win... or is that lose?

    Or ways at 102 days of no clear skies? I forget.

    We have had some light rain out here in the Gorge. [​IMG]

    Weatherman says there will be a break for trick-or-treating. We'll see.

    We've been going here when we visit:

    http://www.sybarisbistro.com/

    Simply amazing food and about 1/2 the price you'd pay in Seattle for the same experience.
