Hi everyone! Ok now you guys have us worried. Gina and Ricky and I went to take the Quiz about Blairsville, and it told us that Blairsville gets the most precipitation??? We all thought that was Seattle! So do you guys get rained on like 1 out of 2 days???
PLEASE tell me that isn't so!

Live well, Love often, Laugh a whole lot!

Rainy days arent that many, It does tend to rain alot when it does, so that kind of makes it seem like it rains alot when you look at the total percip for the year. That make any sense?

It's a surprising fact. A breakdown of annual precipitation (in inches) for you for the cities listed in the quiz, plus Atlanta:

London, England: 23
Seattle, WA: 38
Tampa, FL: 45
Death Valley, CA: 2
Atlanta, GA: 49

And Blairsville, GA : 57-58
(as measured at the Georgia Mountain Experiment Station, just south of town)

They also show that we have about 143 rainy days a year. I agree with Spam4 though - it doesn't feel like that many.

Thank you for the info. Yes, that makes sense and it makes me feel a little better. Didn't like thinking we were moving where it rained every other day. It doesn't sound like it's so bad as all that. For me, it doesn't bother too much. Give me a good book, a warm fire, and I'm golden! My hubby wouldn't like it too much though. He's not the "staying indoors type".
I'll be sure to let Gina and Ricky know this. They were a little worried.

It rained a couple of times today, but only for a few minutes! Now the sun is shining!

Speaking of rain and such. I'm sure some of you remember Joy talking about how bad we need rain down here (Miami). Well, according to the weatherman on our NBC station, from Jan 1, 2006 to May 14, 2006 we had only about 2.4 inches. From May 15 to May 17 we had close to 2.5 inches of rain! Yes, in three days we had more rain than from Jan 1 to May 14!. During that three day period some parts of the county received 8-10 inches of rain.

We needed the rain and still do, BUT...there are still MANY houses down here with blue tarps covering their roofs. These are still left over from Hurrican Wilma! This rain and wind we had this week has really hurt some of those folks. The tarps are torn off and the rain pours in. Sometimes the ceiling falls when you don't expect it (do you ever expect your ceiling to fall) and it hits whoever is under it. Be it a small child or an adult.

Then there are the "roofing contractors" who promise to fix your roof, signs a "contract", takes your deposit, and the work is never started or completed if started. We have a lot of that going on down here.

I could go on, but that is enough for tonight.
