Floor is up and completely gone. Im about half way through cutting the nails out. It rains here more than Seattle now and ive got windows that leak. Gotta dry out the floor before i can clean it up, ospho and paint it. Windows will be coming out shortly after that. The tarp will be on it probably till spring..

Contrary to popular belief, Seattle does not get as much rain as people think. Annually we get more here in Ga.

That is 100% true.

However, in GA you get the rain in storms that come and go.

On the wet side of the mountains in WA state when the fall rains start in October we end up with a lot of gray days until May. It may not rain much on those gray days, if at all, but it sure can get dreary after awhile.

Let me rephrase that. Our average rainfall for September is 2.75". We recieved around 9" this year and October is looking to beat that in the first 2 weeks..so, what im saying is its been raining like MF and everything is wet. Including the inside of my bus.

My brother lives on Bainbridge Island, has for 30 years. You make the point most people don't get, and that's that it is continually gray and misty, but not a lot of actual rain with it.

HA HA
We would often get 9" a night in Puna, HI. Just another sprinkle for us. One weekend it rained nearly 60" in Waiakea Uka in the Hilo district - more than Portland Oregon gets in a year. Downtown Hilo bayfront was under water. I miss it there....

Im not a fan of lots and lots of rain every freakin day. Makes it tough to do anything on the outside of the bus. But i will take rain over snow, any day.
