Seattle is known for rain but really doesn’t get that much, only an average of 36 inches a year. We do get lots of drizzle and clouds, it’s true, but this year is quite dry and cool, unlike many other places. Before the rain this week, we had only about 14 inches of rain since January 1, about 25% under normal. But it rained over two inches recently and it’s still showery. The garden loved it.
