Time to head to the desert...

since March is now third-wettest on record in Spokane:
"Spokane recorded 0.62 inch of rain through 5 p.m. today, pushing the total for the month to 3.31 inches. That eclipses last March when 3.25 inches fell. The wettest March was in 1995 at 3.81 inches."
Here's a convenient web page showing the flooding status for streams in eastern Washington and northern Idaho.

Indeed, this is hastening my departure for southern Utah later this week where I'll spend spring term engaged in various research projects during my leave from the university.

UPDATED and BUMPED: Spokane sets March rainfall record.  It's official.  Soggiest March on record since 1881.
