Rains All the Time?

For all the fame of the rain in this soggy city, conversations about climate often lead to local defensiveness: Seattle, which averages about 38 inches of rain annually, is far from the country’s wettest big city. Atlanta, Boston, Houston, Miami and New York are just some of the others that get more rain.
