A little like what we do in Florida when we hear that there will be a significant weather episode is going on here in the NW. Weather Underground, which is a popular source of weather reporting, says that it will rain Friday through next Wednesday. People are taking that report seriously and doing yard clean ups and some home outdoor projects, like checking the chimney and flashings and stacking wood for the wood stove. My son was up on the roof of his workshop, I was raking and I could hear a neighbors chain saw buzzing. We  will all be so disappointed if it doesn't rain.  My shared mini van just returned from a road trip and is covered in dust. A good rain would be much appreciated.I like a clean interior of a car, but really like a dusty ,muddy exterior. Makes it look like the car went traveling. I remember when we once drove from Chicago ,in a snow storm to the sun shine state,Florida . When we got to Florida, our car had salt from the Illinois roads, and slush all over the wheels. It was a badge to show how hard it was for us to make it all of those almost 1000 miles.I didn't take long  for me to go to a car wash and get that salt off. Don't miss that salt at all.
