When President Obama took office people were abuzz with the idea that "DC is the new Hollywood". Stars were showing up, Michelle became a star, and the parades started. Now it is raining on our parade. Literally. Whoever said DC is the new Hollywood got it wrong; DC is the new Seattle.
It's time to arm you with the facts...
Seattle, Washington Annual Precipitation: 37.1 inches
Washington, DC Annual Precipitation: 39.35 inches
Now it is time to alarm you with further facts... those are averages. This year is not average.
Average May Rainfall: 3.8 in
Actual May Rainfall: 6.1 in
Average June Rainfall: 3.1
Actual June Rainfall (thus far): 4.7
And it's raining right now. And there are still two weeks of the month left.
And, one more thing: average yearly rainfall in San Diego, CA: 10.2 inches.
