^I'm sort of the same way after living in Arizona. I've come to enjoy dreary/cloudy days because I get sick of the sunshine (believe it or not) after a while.

Although I am entertaining the thought of moving to Denver eventually, so there's that...

as stated before, the valley here and the river act as a humidity trap. it's so bad that, as far as i know, the Indians never settled here. i think that pretty much says it all when it comes to local air quality.

btw, hello!
Since you are from Northeast PA (which is cloudier than Cincinnati btw), you will feel right at home in gloomy Portland, OR.

It's a great city - one of my three favorites (Cincy, Denver, NYC). You'll love it should you decide to move there.

I've yet to hear anything bad about it in the four months I've considered/talked about moving. Compared to Arizona, the job market there looks downright fantastic, and I'd actually be going down in elevation (Flagstaff sits at 7000 feet).

Back on topic, though: I love the way Cincinnati looks in the rain. Very, how do I put this, "noir"-ish?

I absolutely love the 4 seasons, which is why I refuse to move to Florida. But sometimes the weather can get me down. If it is 90 or above with a relative humidity the same, at my age, 72, there is no way I am going to play golf. I can endure cold, 60 degrees and dry is prime golf weather to me. Everyone to their likes or dislikes, but if the weather does not change around me during the year I begin to wonder if I am still alive.

I echo your sentiments about the cooler weather. I'd much rather have a cloudy, dry day in the 60s...or even with some rain...as opposed to a bright sunny, humid day in the 80s or higher. Thinking about it, I'd probably do just fine in Portland, Oregon.
