Another sign of dehydration to look for is; are you urinating (taking a leak, for my fellow Texans) regularly. If you are not urinating or if the urine is dark, you may be dehydrated.

Send it up here! We're locked in high 90s with rain so scarce we're all under a burn ban.

(paid a neighbor boy to water all my plants (and our chickens) while we were gone for 10 days....grrrrr...showed him how three times....

Long story short...arrived after midnight and instead of unpacking essentials and going to bed I was "emergency watering" the chickens and the plants.

thankfully I didn't pay him in advance, so we had a talk with him in front of his parents about responsibility, docked his pay and then adjusted that due to the fact that for *some* reason he raked up a *huge* pile of leaves for us....makes no sense...raking leaves is harder work and takes longer.

We explained we would be doing him no favor if we paid him in full for a half arsed job. Damn near lost a couple of my most cherished plants....*blue* hibiscus tree and my dwarf pomegranate tree. grrrrrrr

OK, off topic rant over...

Glad you're doin' better B.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

Yeah it rains a fair bit in late fall and winter, but we only get an average of 20" or so a year in Anacortes. The majority of the crappy wet weather comes from the southwest, and a lot of the time, the Olympic mountains shelter us from the worst of it.

The worst feature is that it's "gentle rain". After 24 hours of what we think is "heavy" rain, we've accumulated half an inch. When we lived in Tidewater VA, we'd get 3" in 45 minutes in those 3:30 pm summer thunderstorms.

The other nice thing about our area is that we don't get much snow. Last winter, it snowed twice - a half inch the first time and about 1.5" the second time. Both occasions it was gone the next day. If we want snow, the Mount Baker ski area in less than an hour away.

On average, though, we like Anacortes better than anywhere we've ever lived. It's the only place we've lived in the US that my sister, who lives in the UK, is jealous of our living here!
