Rain?

... but has it rained, even once, in The Return?

We've seen the scene-setting "windblown Douglas fir branches under grey sky" cut from the original series many times now...

Oddly enough, FTM, I can't seem to recall it ever raining in the original series or FWWM... 

...  peculiar given the Pacific NW climate, no?

A few times, rain has fallen. They make it hard to see, a little. For instance, in the drive from Fat Trout with Mickey and Carl, the windshield wipers are moving on the car behind  them. It's raining also when Hawk goes to visit the Palmer house. 

 

In the original series, the most memorable rain to me was when Leo shoots Waldo.

Your Laura disappeared. There's just me now.

This has been a message...from the LOG.

Rain?  You bet.  What about "Fuck you, Gene Kelly!  Motherfucker!", for example?

Terrific--thanks!

Actually it doesn't rain as much as most people think in that part of the state. It's a much different climate than the Seattle area.

The PNW gets a reputation for constant rain, but honestly that's mostly Seattle. Portland gets moderate rain most of the year, and then there is a rainy winter and fall. Eastern Washington gets only moderate rain. And a huge part of Oregon is actually a desert.

Thanks, Brandy and Tibius.  I stand corrected!

A huge part of WA is quasi-desert too.

As a born and raised Seattle resident, what we get is best described as mist/drizzle from October to April.  There are clear weeks sometimes in the dead of winter.  May to September is often the opposite.  Hot, dry, and sunny.  90s for the last two weeks.  When Peaks was filming over in North Bend and Snoqualmie, um and Everett, Monroe, Olallie, etc., and all the fans were obnoxiously obsessing (good times!), it was August/September and the weather was horrible--sunny and pretty!  I hated it.  Somehow they got a few misty shots, thank god.

People don't know our actual weather because the movies have shown us in a constant downpour with lightning all around which virtually almost never happens.  Like the "fuck you, Gene Kelly" scene which is not our typical rain...we call that fun rain!  Wasn't that DC, Philadelphia,  or somewhere, btw?

A major storm with thunder & lightning is going on when Judge Sternwood comes to town.

"A major storm with thunder & lightning is going on when Judge Sternwood comes to town." ... could that possibly coincide with the storm Dr. Amp mentioned, when he saw Nadine in grocery store looking for her lost potato? Didn't it seem like that tripped a switch for Nadine? 

(and I thought I saw a 'few' raindrops during Sonny Jim's gym set scene) 😉

I have total recall of everything and anything I ever made up.

Even though Twin Peaks is shown to be in the north-east corner of Washington State, it was and is filmed in western-Washington largely in Fall City, Snoqualmie and North Bend. I live near there and have occasionally come across them filming the show since season 1 (they keep filming dates/times quiet). The Roadhouse is actually a well-known restaurant in Fall City, the Double-R Diner is in North Bend and the Twin Peaks Lodge is at Snoqualmie Falls (all under different names of course).

I remember driving up when they were filming a scene in for season 1 at the "Roadhouse" when it started raining so hard that they had to give up and go home. They use booms that go up 50 feet or more with lights and cameras for filming and I'm sure that gets dangerous in a heavy downpour. This may explain the lack of rain episodes more than anything else.
