Rains All The Time!

[A]t this place we had wintered and remained from the 7th of Decr. 1805 to this day and have lived as well as we had any right to expect, and we can say that we were never one day without 3 meals of some kind a day either pore Elk meat or roots, notwithstanding the repeated fall of rain which has fallen almost constantly since we passed the long narrows.
—Meriwether Clark, wrote before setting out on March 23, 1806 from Fort Clatsop, Oregon.
