For those who think Seattle is full of drips, you might be surprised to know that Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas and Miami all get more rain per year than Seattle’s 37 inches, which is the U.S. average.

DC, supposedly a city of rainmakers, gets 39.7 inches per year of rain, less rain per year than New York (49.9 inches/yr.) and far less than slippery New Orleans (62.7 inches/yr.), the wettest city in America.
