Rain In Salem For the First Time

Well, for the first time since 1892:

....it hadn't rained in Oregon's capital on July 12 since record-keeping began in 1892.

Thirty years later, in 1928, the official weather station began keeping weather data at Salem Municipal Airport, and the streak continued.

Nope, it doesn't rain all the time in the Pacific Northwest.
