Dry streak watch -- Did it rain yet?

Dry streak watch -- Did it rain yet?

(Thought about ending the blog here along the lines of the "Has the Large Hadron Collider Destroyed The World" web site but I'll put a little more :) )

It did not rain at Sea-Tac Airport Wednesday. Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. Even though there was apparent measurable rain around central and north Seattle, it completely missed Sea-Tac, meaning the streak survived.

Our next shot at stopping the streak is a slight chance for rain on Saturday, a little better chance for Sunday -- although neither day is exactly a regionwide soaker.

If we make it through the weekend, we'll start nearing the Top 10 driest streaks of any time of year -- 10th driest is 37 days.

P.S. -- Paul Deanno found these great statistic: Since our last rain on May 19, it's rained in Miami on 25 of the 29 days.
