We are into our 10 to 1 day cycle. That is 10 days of rain to one dry day. If I lived in San Deigo would I ever have this problem?

If you live in seattle don't cry about the rain, you must embrace the wet. At least you were not out in Elma, WA racing through cow shit yesterday like some of us. Then you have something to bitch about, riding through one lane farm roads, trying to change flat tires as fast as you can, while at the same time trying to wipe cow crap off of your glasses while people hit the road around you. Invest in some good fenders, and move to california if you don't like it here!!!
Ah yes, Seattledavet

I used to live in Seattle. I wasn't tanned, it was rust!

The skies were often described as 'elephant grey'.

I was told that a man in Seattle that wore a grey flannel suit was in perfect camoflage.
But those 3 days in August are spectacular!LC

How long do I have to go now? All those people that moved here from California are finally starting to flee, which is good because the traffic is even worse than the rain. I can usually bike from one end of the city to the other during rush hour (which lasts all day long now!) before a car can drive it. At least the ducks and my rain bike are happy.
