Does it *really* rain in Seattle '24/7'? Not even close!
It was an off hand and innocuous remark in a Tweet from someone back East after I had posted a sunset photo of Mt. Rainier: "Seattle -- I thought it rained 24/7 there?"
Yes, yes, we get that all the time, right up there with "it rains 9 months of the year there." But it got me to wondering, if not "24/7" -- how often does it really rain in Seattle?
Believe it or not, the data is actually out there to find out.
