It was a long, long time ago and I was contemplating our web presence. I wanted to establish a foothold on the web but needed a handle. The call went out to the family that I was looking for a domain name that we could embrace. Something that that was emblematic of who we are as a family, a people, and a our particular situation in the world. It seemed like an impossible task.
We had recently moved to the region from the East Coast. It was raining – like it does here from time to time – and I think my wife was having a little home sickness and weather fatigue (she grew up in the relatively warm and dry Southern coastal Virginia). She almost immediately blurted out “soggy city”.
I looked and it was available so we nabbed it. It’s been that way ever since.
