Does It ALWAYS Rain On The Fourth Of July?

SEATTLE - If it seems like Mother Nature likes to pick on Seattle on the Fourth of July, it might be because it's true.

Looking back over the past 110 years of weather observations in Seattle, it has rained on July 4th a whopping 32 times -- including three of the past five years.

Even more puzzling is that statistically, July 4th has had the most rainy days of any other day in July. Even July 4th's average temperature of 72 degrees has been hard to come by of late, only reaching 77 once in the past five years, and then being under 70 the other four.

June 25th has only had 24 days of rain on the past 110 years, so maybe if only the founding fathers could have finished the Declaration of Independence a week earlier...

YouNews Hawkcited! Hawkcited!
Ten days ago, Douglas Walthers and Sheila Shannon put their creative heads together and wrote a bouncy new song for Seahawks fan "Hawkcited" - which was based on Doug asking Sheila about the Superbowl and saying "So, are you 'Hawk-cited?" Within ten days, not only was a song written and produced with the help of world class Bear Creek Recording Studio, but then Jerry Streeter at Blue Stellar Productions jumped in - and a music video was created! The story of how this video came to be is just another story of how devoted Seattle Seahawk Fans are to their team!
