Normally, that would be true, but this has been the nicest Seattle summer in recent memory. We've had something like 60 straight days of 70-degree-plus weather, an all-time record, and no substantial rain for about three months (I'm not exaggerating). Unbelievable weather, but it's getting a little monotonous and most people are ready for some rain. Never thought I'd say that!

Sunshine is plenty in Seattle in the summer. And this summer, pretty much everyday has been sunny to the point where I'm looking forward to rain!
By the way, since you are from Detroit, these numbers might interest you:
Average annual rainfall Detroit - 30.03 (using Troy, MI actually)
Average annual rainfall Seattle - 39.86.
Sure, that is more, but not shockingly more.
Cities like my former home, NYC, and Atlanta average more per year.
Anwyay, uhh, this about airplanes!!
