Crazy out there. It reminds me of a monsoon without the humidity, heat, and rain.

Drive safely if you must drive!

It's sprinkling right now where I'm at (near Sky Harbor). I saw the winds gust to 41, not sure if it got faster then that.....

Can do without the wind, but hoping for a good rain. A free watering, and I have a few weeds to pull.... much easier after a rain.

Vegas is like this frequently. I think we may have actually hit .02 inches here at Mid-town.

Would I be wrong to say Seattle and Portland are like this 120+ days per year? It's coming down pretty good right now by Hayden VA. 14:30.

I live not to far from Portland and yes, Portland is like this well over 120 days per year.
I live on the central Oregon coast and to be honest, it's like this but much colder well over 300 days per year and that's why I'm selling out and heading your way.
I always laugh at how many of the people on this forum complain about the sun and the heat. Try living in the rain, heavy winds and in the low 50's and below for 300 days a year. Where I live on the coast, we AVERAGE 119 inches of rain per year. If you like things green, then the Oregon coast is the place for you. Everything is green. The trees, the grass, the sides of your house, your car, the decks, anything in your garden sheds and even the roads that aren't well traveled turn green. Don't drive your car for a few weeks in the winter and you'll find the interior gets green with mold.
Many of you folks don't realize how good you have it. I'll be thanking my lucky stars when my house sells. Gloomy weather is a fact around here and I for one am looking forward to getting back to the desert.

I spent the entire day downtown but the rain caught up with me. Spent the rest of the day soaked. But still had a great time.
