I've been to Yachats. It's beautiful. Also, it rains like 330 days a year.

Guess they'll need a dome, then. (The next time they want to tear one down, move it to Yachats instead!)

I understand one word in the titme ("MLB"), but that's it. Well, I guess I understand the words "Rubbery" and "Shrubbery" but they don't make sense here. No clue on "Yachats" or "Smelt".

FWIW, fried smelt is delicious

Seconding the beauty of Yachats. Honeymooned there. Didn't deal with much rain, although our trip was in July. The high was in the upper 70s each day. I wanted never to leave.

Lived in Oregon for 35 years. Never heard of Yachats.

I can help you there. It's an inescapable truth that if Yachats Smelt it, then Yachats was in fact the one who dealt it.
