    Looks like we maybe got around 3/4" of an inch here in Seatac as well. On several occasions it really came down. "real" rain, not this pansy bubblegum stuff we have seen for the last 8 months :D

    Finally went to the range yesterday to check the hunting rifle and it was pouring when we got there. Haven't been shooting for several months.

    Great day at the range!

    lol, yeah shame

    I was living in Prospect at the time and got up before day break to take a rig over to Butte Falls to to some work in it.
    on the way over I just about drove into a huge washout that took about a 50ft stretch of BF/Prospect highway 30ft deep
    There were lava tubes just above town gushing water, flooding town for days.....messed up a lot of stuff since its primarily pumice dirt there

    I was in a explorer post in 97 for SAR. We all went to some small town near the coast and filled sand bags till our hands were raw.
    Felt bad for those people.

    Not a bit of muddy water in the Nestucca; ground is soaking up rain water like a sponge.
