No Kidding

Seattle has had 23 consecutive days of rain, and I should know. The windshield wipers on my truck have been in the ‘on’ position for, yes, 23 days. But, we haven’t broken the record yet.

With more rain forecast over the next several days, Seattle could break a record set in 1953. The city saw 33 days in a row of measurable precipitation then _ the most since the National Weather Service office started tracking rainfall here in 1931.

“Usually we have a few days of rain and one or two days of cloudy and dreary days and then it rains again, and that’s the way it goes,” weather service meteorologist Johnny Burg said Monday. “We’re not getting our dry days in between – just having one system follow another.”
