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.

YouNews It's Quadruplets! It's Quadruplets!
On May 2, I found a newly built Dark-eyed Oregon Junco nest in one of my hanging baskets. By May 9 we had 4 eggs. This past Monday, May 18, the eggs hatched, 3 between 9am and noon, the final one during the night into Tuesday.

I know this is a "played out" location - but I couldn't resist as the weather was so nice tonight!
