SEATTLE -

Sometimes it can sure seem like it rains for months on end around here, but Chris McNabb wondered what the record is for number of consecutive days with measurable rain.

But it’s not 90 days, or even 60 days. The answer is 33, set between Jan. 7 and Feb. 8 in 1953. During the dry season (that’d be between May and September), the record is 11, set between May 9 and May 19 in 1945.

On the flip side, the driest stretch was 51 days between July 7 and Aug. 26 in 1951.

My son Keoni Bananola Lamar is 8yr old. The video is when he was 6yrs. He started doing flips on a trampoline in his grandma back yard when he was 5yr. From the first time he got on the trampoline I knew he was fearless.

As my friend and I were headed back from an adventurous day of hiking up Summit Peak and Summit Lake in the Carbon river area of the park, we came into a little clearing just in time to see a beautiful sunset on Mount Rainier and the lenticular cloud that had just formed just above it.
