Mobile, Alabama: The Rainiest City in the Continental US


A rainy Alabama afternoon. July 2020.
A rainy lunch in the car. Alabama. July 2020.


Mobile, Alabama, is the rainiest city in the continental United States.

Wait, what?!

Mobile, Alabama, receives more than five FEET of water every year, with an average of 59 rainy days per year. 

Seattle isn't even in the top 20. 

I have pulled out my vastly under-used yellow poncho that I bought 10 years ago when I lived in Caucasus, Georgia.

Because after a year and a half in COVID isolation, I am not going to let rain keep me inside.
