Spokane rain check

Here are some of the non-Northwest U.S. cities that get three times the annual rainfall Spokane receives: Atlanta, Birmingham, Houston, Jacksonville, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, New York and Orlando.

Here are some of the cities that get at least double the amount of Spokane's rainfall: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Burlington, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Hartford, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Providence, Raleigh, Richmond, Rochester, San Antonio, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington, D.C.

And the list of cities that simply get significantly more precipitation than we do here in our corner of “rainy Washington” is insanely long.
