Liquid Sunshine

Juneau received record amounts of precipitation during the past two days. Records were broke at both the airport and the National Weather Service (NWS) office (on Mendenhall Loop Road) Wednesday. The NWS received a record 1.98 inches on Wednesday surpassing the 2006 record of .75 inches. Since January 1, 2010 Juneau has received 19.74 inches of precipitation, which is less than last year’s year to date amount of 23.07 inches. No wonder it feels so much drier this summer.

That's a very positive spin on your torrential rain!

Beautiful shot - I love the bus's yellow and how it stands out against the rainy background. If you ever get tired of the rain, send it my way. Summer here is very dry. Too dry!

yikes. That's what it looked like here last week, but now we are soaking up the sun while it lasts! Hopefully it heads your way too!

GREAT photo! Bright colors contrast with the cold and dark of the rain!
