Dave!Seattle is famous for its rain, which is only partially correct. The city does get its fair share, but there are many days of clear blue skies and sunshine too.

But today is not one of those days.

Today the heavens decided to split open and dump a deluge of water on the downtown city streets. It is not a pretty site, and people have vacated the sidewalks to escape the flood. I tried to photograph the chaos as thunder was booming above, but the rain was so dense all you could see was a blur. After waiting a bit for the rain to lessen, I finally managed to take a photo down 1st Street in Pioneer Square...


If you look carefully, you can see the rain still streaking through the shot. Kind of strange that just last week Seattle was suffering through record high temperatures.

I am tired to the point of collapse, so it's off to bed for me... if you are looking for a bit of entertainment, you might want to check out Maddox's review of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, which is pretty harsh (but very funny).

Movie Quotable of the Day: "Today I saw a slave become more powerful than the Emperor of Rome."
Day-Before-Yesterday's Answer: Jackie Brown (1999) with Pam Grier and Robert Forster.

    You should count yourselves lucky who’ve had some warmth so far. Sweden is wrapped in bad weather those damn brits are throwing at us, giving us rain showers, wind and below 15 °C (59 °F). The deluge is only a way of balancing the weather a bit… moahaha! 🙂

    Well I’m in Scotland, so who’s giving us bad weather? Our temperatures are also below 15 degrees (today is about 11 degrees with a downpour as company). This time last year I remember sitting around in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh with an ice-cream cone and the sun melting it down my hand! Ah the fun of it all =D
