Why “SoggyCity”?

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.
