SEATTLE - Planning a picnic tomorrow? Perhaps an outdoor wedding? The statistics are not on your side if you want to stay dry.

Indeed, looking back over the past 109 years, Nov. 19 is far and away the day it has rained the most -- a whopping 83 times. The second-wettest day is Jan. 13 with only 76 times.

If a dry day is what you need, try late July or early August. On July 22, July 30, Aug. 1, and Aug. 4, it has only rained 9 times in the last 110 years. That's why the big SeaFair events are held during the last week in July and first week in August -- they've done their weather homework.

This was a once-in-a-lifetime shot of a brilliant sunrise on the water of Poulsbo. When I saw the pink light streaming into my window early that morning, I ran outside to capture this photo. Once I saw the photo, I realized that the sunrise created a fire and ice effect that was stunning.

Driving toward Silverdale on Hwy 3, from brilliant fall sunshine, into this churning black storm, was unlike anything I've witnessed in Washington. Sheets of rain, gusts of wind, and a completely black sky overtook the area, while the periphery stayed sunny.
