Problems will arise in Seattle just like anyplace. Biggest problem: Rain.
(2) Lack of sunshine (3) Distance (4) costs overall (5) Did I say rain? (6)
Hmm... who goes for the conference anymore? For most over 40--its
location=3D2C location=3D2C location=3D2C Although i am surprised more folk=
't want to
leave the misery of the cold midwest and north east for Tampa--Oh well.
In a message dated 4/21/2011 3:53:12 P.M. Central Daylight Time=3D2C
seattle is actually relatively cheap to fly in to=3D2C especially compared
to other cities in the region=3D2C such as portland=3D2C or and vancouver=
the art was too spread out in tampa=3D2C and that kind of sucked. it
would have been nice if the whole conference could have been in St.
Pete where all the art was.

who started this? Me?
Precipitation in Seattle during April, historic and April 2010
Days less than .01=3D94 21
Days less than .10=3D94 8
Days less than .50=3D94 1
Days less than 1.00=3D94 1
Monthly total 3.34=3D94
Monthly Records High 7.8=3D94 Low .37=3D94
So the odds are about one in three for being little or no rain on any April
(To H.M. in the wet-lamit valley OSU says the average is 40"-50" per year.
NOAA says Seattle's average is 36". Being in a La Nina year our total at
the end of 2010 was 42.5". If next year we swing into a El Nino cycle we
might have a dry April)
