Where is the rain?

When I moved to Seattle, I was ready for a long, dark, and *wet*
winter. But I was also looking forward to hitting the slopes on
weekends and even promised myself to go night skiing. Reality has
been very different. It's been sunny for the vast majority of days.
We've only had a few rainy days in the past 2 months. In fact, it
has been raining less here than it did in the Bay Area. The ski
resorts are all closed. I'm beginning to think that the rain is a
myth. It's also been very clear and my commute allows me to get a
good peak of 3 national parks (Olympics, Mt Rainer, and Cascades).
Some my friends here keep telling me that it's different, but I'm
beginning to think that it's their way of keeping the Californians out
of here and thus keeping the house prices so low (at least
relatively). The temperature is about 5-10 degrees cooler, however.
But I never mind that given all the cold places that I grew up in.
