That first image posted of Seattle's skyline is absolutely breathtaking. It is somewhat reminiscent of Hong Kong there. Thanks for posting it! Too bad the entire city will be destroyed at some point by a major earthquake.

So, do you expect that Stockholm should be warmer as Seattle when it's latitude is so far north? Winters and Summers are warm enough for its latitude, thanks to the Gulf Stream.

I rather take 4 seasons and cold & snow winters than mild, rainy winters.

Now, now, now! Scranton is starting to suckle on the economic teat of New York City with power-commuters because we're not creative enough to have a renaissance of our own! So there!

I like Seattle's temperatures too (Not the winter because I like snow and 4 seasons) and I don't like Cloudy, rainy winters. 2000 hrs of annual sunshine is not enough for me.

wow, Stockholm looks much more beautiful (not that Seattle's not beautiful). Of Course, its like apples an oranges though. Stockholm's a very historical, old, low rise city and Seattles a new, modern, and (the core) is a high rise city. I find historical old low rise cities much more beautiful. Of course, there are exceptions
