Four plus inches of rain

It was a wet day yesterday, what with landslides and 4+ inches of rain (7+ near Bremerton). Four inches is a little over 11% of Seattle’s annual 36 inches of rainfall. I know of at least a couple of people who were pulling soggy belongings out of their basements last night. My stuff: not on the floor of my basement. I learned that one early on. If you’re collecting your damp belongings from your basement, you can count your blessings that you can still get into your home and there is still stuff there – some people aren’t so lucky.
