The region is in the midst of one of the driest streaks on record. And there's little chance of that changing soon.<p>It hasn't been your imagination. It's been really dry in the Northwest this summer. In fact, it's been mid-July since Seattle, Portland and Boise have recorded any measurable precipitation.<p>Summers are typically dry in this part of the country, but this stretch is almost one for the record books.
