PICTURES! Inside and out.

As for all the rain, you're almost in the rain forest there, head east. We lived in Moses Lake for a couple years (many years ago). They probably don't get the rain in a year that you get in a week!

Oregon....Does it rain any less there than Washington?. I have never been to Oregon when it hasn't rained and we've been there about 15 times over the last 6 years.

Rain??? What is that? I think we have gotten 0.11 inches for the YEAR do far. Send some of the water this way so we can get off this water restriction.

In our western states, you've got to get east of the Cascade and Sierra Mountain Ranges to get drier weather. We're in Central Oregon (near Bend) and only get about 13" / year. But winters are cold, and long, here...so we snowbird.
