Rainiest cities

Andy, I too read that Yahoo article about the rainiest cities. I responded to them to let them know their studies were wrong. Following is what I said and what they replied.

Hi Robert,

They weren't my findings, as I didn't conduct the study.

I meant to state that the study on only looked at the contiguous 48
states and have made a correction to the story on our site to note that
and that places in Hawaii and Alaska actually get more rain.

After living in Ketchikan Alaska for 14 years I have to dispute your
findings. I think you will find Ketchikan's average precipitation to be
much more than Alabama's. This is of course unless you are saying a
"city" in this study must have a certain amount of population to be part
of the study.
