where the rain mainly falls: not Seattle

Seattle, contrary to myth, is not the rainiest city in the Lower 48. That honor belongs to Mobile, Alabama. In fact, Olympia, where I live, beats out Seattle, coming in at #24 on the list of ombrophilous American cities.

Olympia, it should be noted, has the most days with rain on average; we don't get anywhere near Mobile's five feet per annum, though.
