Liberal Media rips Seattle

Apparently Seattle's rain is news that is fit to print. The New York Times covers the near record rainfall with it's front page article, "City That Takes Rain in Stride Puts on Hip Boots."

The most interesting comment is about 1/2 way through the article.

"The weather is a constant topic of conversation, even among those who insist the rain “doesn’t bother me,” but this month’s drama has stirred discussions about long-term implications. Some models of global warming predict more extreme wet weather in future Northwest winters, and more extreme dry periods in the summer. Just as November has seen record-breaking rain, this summer was unusually dry and hot.

Six of the 10 wettest Novembers on record in Seattle have occurred in the last 16 years, according to the National Weather Service.

So global warming will actually make Seattle wetter in the winter. I'll bet everyone who is polishing the rust off their noses will admit that something's a changin'.
