It is no secret that the Pacific Northwest is known for it’s rain. Over the course of the last month if you have found yourself saying “there sure is a lot of rain right now,” your senses have not betrayed you. The Seattle rainfall record has been broken for the month of October.

In 2003 the city experienced 5.02 inches of rain in a single day making this month’s feat even more incredible.
