When's The Safest Day To Plan An Outdoor Picnic?

SEATTLE - Statistically speaking, there are 4 days in Seattle that are tied for the honor of having rained the least over the past 109 years.

On July 22, July 30, Aug. 1, and Aug. 4, it has only rained 9 times in the last 109 years. In a general sense, the last weekend in July and first week in August are the driest. That's why the big SeaFair events are held then.

Ironically, this year with our very dry summer, what little rain fell managed to fall on two of the driest days listed above.

The worst day to plan outdoor activities? Nov. 19 is the statistical wettest day of the year, with 82 rainy days in the past 109 years.

and 6 (of its 62 moons)were taken Sunday morning at 2am. Not
great conditions, especially with the bright moon. A Meade

Saturn.

Heading south on I-5 on Saturday, May 2nd, I noticed how gorgeous the mountain looked, so pulled off the freeway at Albro and parked near the back side of Boeing Field to take some pictures.
