As an aside, when The Steeler's played the Seahawks in the superbowl, they were comparing Pittsburgh and Seattle. Pittsburgh had more rain, and more overcast rainy days!
Where I am in Pa (central part, near State College) the soil can vary from valley to valley to quite an extent! I have some sort of combination of limestone and clay.
From previous experiences with wet basements, when I build something I have drains going every which way. After I made requests to the builder, of my house he balked, then he said what I suggested was overkill. So I spent my own money and placed the extra drain pipe myself (they are cheap). Worked great! Maybe it was overkill, but the basement is dry!
