First time in years...? It was rainy last year wasn't it? I distinctly remember wishing I had an umbrella OH HEY THANKS gonna go pack one now.
I was just talking to someone the other day about how there are as many words for types of rain in Seattle as there are for snow in parts of Alaska. I started listing some off and it seemed accurate. My favorite is "spitting rain", as that seems to be the norm.
My husband is from California and he couldn't believe I've never owned an umbrella. I said "why?" and he gestured out the window (where it was lightly misting at best) and said "because it rains ALL THE TIME". I said "that isn't rain. I'll tell you when it's raining".
5 years later (read: 5 cycles of fall, winter and spring rain) he looked at me and said "I get it now"

Yes. It rained crazy hard a couple of times. I got nearly soaked to the bone after being in it for a few minutes.
