… Did you know that in the Pacific Northwest, it rains? A lot?
Only in the winter. Okay, and in the fall and spring. Summers are bone-dry and by mid-July there’s usually a burn ban, the fire risk is so bad.
But in the cooler seasons, it rains, and even the sandy ground becomes saturated. Walks around our property are punctuated by squish-squish-squishing. Rubber boots are a must.
