we just wish it WOULD rain here in phoenix, az.

we don't need no umbrellas!!

we do pack heavy duty rain jackets when we travel
but usually
whenever it rains - we're out dancin' in it.

It rains more in Mobile, Al. than anywhere else in the United States...about 68" a year. Several years ago when my grandson was four years old he started calling his frog umbrella an underbrella...when asked why he replied because you stand under it. Makes perfect sense to me so I now do the same

Same here. Though carrying an umbrella seems like a good way to ensure it WON'T rain. Forgetting to bring one ensures it will.

We've driven through Mobile 5 or 10 times and it wasn't raining. Maybe we could be hired to dry out things.

But Ketchikan, Alaska, claims far more rain—152". When we were there, traveling through southeast Alaska, it had rained for 2 weeks, but when we got to Ketchokan, it was sunny for 2 days we were there.

Right now we live in the dry southwest. Need a drought?—we are available. Carol, no need for a umbrella if you buy the lot next door.

Sorry folks. If its supposed to rain, I have my big umbrella. Getting to the office soaking wet wasn't a good idea. I guess living in the UK taught me to be prepared. Now I've got'em in the house for the dash out to the vehicles when its raining, and also store them in the truck. My daughter will tell you - the idea of style or "looking dumb" (daughter's sentiment) was never something I gave a lot of thought to.

Sorry 79nTow but the Hoh Rainforest, near my little pieces of woods, receives over 150 inches of rain per year as is part of the only temperate rain forest in the United States.
