- It rained today. Gonna rain all week.
Yesterday. The day before. The day before.
Bailed out my dinghy today. It was full of rainwater, the gunn'ls awash. I figure it took a foot of rain to do that.
Small stuff, compared to what's happened down on the gulf coast. But wet, nonetheless.
Made working on the boat a bit damp. Hooked up the TV. Refilled the water. Recharged the propane. Checked the batteries. Didn't sail. First weekend w/out sailing since - golly, a long time.
The Puget Sound region is noted for rain. We tell everyone that it only rains a little every day. So I guess I oughtn't complain. But the last couple months have spoiled me, it seems.
Boat comes out of the water next weekend for a bottom job and prop servicing. No sailing for a few days then, either.
Color me blue and damp. I can't wait for the winter races to start!

- oh well when southern calif falls off into the ocean they won't have to worry about drinking water ..jdOn Mon, Apr 7, 2014 at 7:22 PM, Jesse Doyle <jess81452@...> wrote:
The people in southern California need to be worried. They get a lot of

water because the salt water is going too far up the rivers now. Better
start getting some rain soon or there's going to be a lot of thirsty people.
They were going to build a lot of desalination plants but the eco freaks
said that it would put too much salt back in one area. They fail to see just
how good the plants are working in Australia. Where the discharge is there
is massive growth. Don't know where their brains went but they had better
stop halting progress or they will suffer the same as the rest of the
people. Eco freak=idiot.
Just my two cents for what their worth.

rains so there are lots of nice pleasant sunny days. So people flock there.
But none of them ever bring any water with them and they never seem to like
the idea of giving up drinking it. Luckily J. G. Boswell has been saving it
up for them. Even luckier is that it's TV Land there so I'm sure it will be

I've actually heard the term "rain". The locals call it La Fabula d'Lluvia.
It's pretty much considered a myth. I think the History Channel disproved
it. My wife, who grew up in Oregon, swears that she actually saw it, but
then she claims pine trees grow over 20 feet tall too, so I can't put much
credence on her tall tails.

I lived in eastern Kansas (Leavenworth area) for a few years, and they get
more rain. Ditto Dallas. Tornado Alley could as easily be called Thunder
Road. It all comes down in big gully-washers there; up here it just mists
heavily with occasional actual raindrops for hours, days, weeks . . . too
wet to work outside, not wet enough to be called a 'storm.' You should see
my old Saturn, which I leave outside in the driveway. The north side of the
car is dirty greenish-brown with moss, the south side is clean.
