I am moving back to the Seattle area. Will be back there by Jan 1, 2009. Seattle 36 inches of rain per year. Miami gets 65 inches and hurricanes. Mississippi gets 75 inches. I do not know what they expect here this year but they are advertising snow blowers on Miami and Palm Beach TV stations.
Thank you
