the rains came down and the floods came up

they call seattle 'the rainy city.' the truth is that it doesn't get an unusual amount of rain on average, though it is spread over 200 days a year, which might make it seem that way.

but yesterday was different. the rain fell, and it kept on falling. having been here just a little bit less than five months, we have already experienced the 2nd rainiest day in seattle history. falling trees caused power outages. flooding closed roads. schools were closed, and traffic is still a mess. you can see some incredible photos here.

and to think, i've been worried about the snow...
