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.

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.
