Coincidentally, it's 50 and rainy in Boston today. It's the worst. Give me 25 and sunny any day.

I said cloudy, not rainy. There are many overcast winter days with no rain, or very brief rain. Pretty much the weather that it looks like Seattle is having right now.

That's a different story. I actually love 50 and cloudy. Very "autumn" feeling. The rain? Not so much.

In city terms, I have a crush on Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and Victoria.

Boston gets about 10 inches more rainfall per year.... not to mention all that snow.
Those average highs for Seattle must be really outdated. Seattle.gov has the average highs for Seattle July and August at about 76, but even that seems way off.

If you look at the historical weather calendar for July and August for both this year and last year the high rarely got below 80 degrees.

It was in the 80's-90's the past two summers.
