There’s a fascinating article over at Komo News that uses Seattle Public Utilities data to map Seattle’s rain patterns, Rainier Beach really is rainier than anywhere else in Seattle:

The Seattle Public Utilities, which operates 17 rain gauges spread across the city, has gone back over their past 35 years of data and have discovered Seattle’s rains are not equal. Some parts of the city get as much as 20 percent more rain per year on average than others. SPU has used this data to declare the wettest spot in the city: The Rainier Beach neighborhood.

I’m glad to see I live in a neighborhood that “only” sees 34″ of rain as opposed to 40″!
