I spent almost 2 weeks in Seattle and came so close to seeing the record for consecutive days of rain get broken. Unfortunately, on Sunday, January 15th there was no measurable rain. Then I return home to Phoenix and we are closing in on the record for consecutive days without rain (101 days). Well, we have just broken that record. At least I was present for a record to be set. Unfortunately, this was not a record I wanted to see broken. As I am typing this, I am listening to the news being replayed on TV and hear that Seattle is expecting 8 inches of rain. Boy, if only that could be redirected to Phoenix somehow!!!
I will be praying for rain here as we really need it!!
I think your lack of rain is the same reason we have a warm winter here in Minnesota. All of our weather is coming from the Pacific rather than from Canada.

Too bad we can't beam water - or better yet - snow ala Star Trek. I could have a clean driveway in seconds just by beaming the snow there to a patch of parkland. At 70+ degrees, this would be water in minutes.

Yes, I wish that were possible!!! You could beam your snow right to our resevoirs and we would be in good shape!!
And for high entertainment...beam it right over a boater's head.
