Doug grew up in a wee town in western Washington called Aberdeen. Any time I talk about how rainy it is in the Northwest, he loves to tell me it's not as wet there as I think. Whatev.
A few weeks ago he checked out a book from the library called "Extreme Weather." He wanted it because it had some cool info in it about tornadoes or something.
So in the car on the way home, I was flipping through it and came upon a chapter about rain and floods. I was about to turn the page when I stopped dead in my tracks... there was tiny "Aberdeen, WA" on a chart. #1 on the chart, in fact:
I not-so-humbly showed Doug, and seriously we couldn't stop laughing. Seeing little Aberdeen on a chart alongside such larger cities like Mobile and Miami was such a treasure.
Such a treasure...
