Tomorrow will be a nice litmus test for the sunroof on the 06 forester I just bought 😯

I'm with you.  I noticed a faint water stain on my headliner a couple of weeks ago and don't know if it is recent, or from before the last time I cleaned/checked my drains.  That was on the chore list for this week but I didn't get to it.  I think I should be ok as long as I don't park on any steep inclines.

What do you drive? Are you one of many Mazda folks on here?

Man, the models are really backing off the rain in general. I will lose my bet easily, but I’m thinking .75’’ - 1.25’’ total for PDX and Salem through the weekend now. Seattle 1’’ - 1.5’’. Tacoma and Olympia 1.25’’ -1.75’’.  Eugene 1’’ - 1.5’’. 
 

Still great, but disappointing too if it verifies.

It’s definitely autumn already in Whatcom County.

Asters are blooming in the meadows:

And I found these in the woods this afternoon:

It’s the worst start to the mushroom season down here I have ever seen. Did manage a few chants yesterday though

I'm a VW guy.  I have a 2013 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI with a....

I love the look of Mazdas, and have almost pulled the trigger on one a couple of times, then inevitably I talk to someone who had an absolutely horrible experience with them and it scared me off.  I know the same can happen to VW's (or about any car brand for that matter), but my first 3 cars were VW's, and I had a '69 bug there in the middle (I still mourn over my decision to sell that one).

I had a 2000 Jetta back in the day that I used when gas prices went insane in the later 2000’s and mostly parked my Tahoe except when absolutely needed. It was a great car but it had a mystery leak that I could never figure out. It became a greenhouse inside of it during the winter but even the dealer could not find the source.

Forks may break a rainfall record, but like someone said earlier totals on the models, have backed off.

Yeah. Been kinda tracking this more today. Don’t think a 24 hour total record is possible at SEA anymore too. Mentioned the other day that 1.71” is the Sept. 24 hour record.

More like half?! It was a beautiful morning! There was no clouds in sight.  then it all changed by mid afternoon. Still a wonderful day though! 😃

We were sitting on the deck between 4-5 and it was still fairly sunny and pleasantly warm.    More like 80% of the day here. 👍

Yay! Glad you weren't kicked out of Gerudo City. No 'Voi' allowed. That means men.  Thought you were one of those that kept trying to sneak in. Voi is men and Vai is a women.

Oh! It was completely different here. In the morning when I left for work it was nothing but sunshine. Left early today to get some stuff done and clouds started rolling in around 2pm. By 5pm it was mostly cloudy. 
 

I find it interesting that it’s mostly clear right now ahead of the storm.

Bet many on here don’t understand this reference except maybe a few. Myself included… understood this perfectly.  😂
