We get 120+/- inches of rain a year here, so rains like that are nothing unusual. Lots of people (on the cruise ships) don't realize that the National Forest here is a temperate rain forest. Ketchikan AK gets 220+/- inches of rain just south of us. The key is having the ability to deal with all the water. We have very little soil to hold it, but a huge network of streams and gulleys to handle the runoff. And not a lot of asphalt parking lots like the Outside.
