Hmmmm - many interesting suggestions we've never heard of! Must look into...

We're getting the feeling that summers in the PNW are generally sunny though?

Also - where is it most consistantly 66 degrees? High & low as close as possible...
This is the PERFECT temp!!!

Astoria seems possible - nice weather - though how far out can you go from the city proper and still have the same weather? We don't like cities! We would want at LEAST an acre! (Preferable more like 50-100! - but $$$!!!)

In general. how far can you get from the coast up there in OR & WA & still keep the nice cloudy rainy gloomy cool weather?
Pretty much the Cascade Mountains, but definitely the Coast Range. I had a friend who lived on the Washington coast, and she thought that the Portland area was too hot & humid (in comparison). As long as you're not buying property directly on the ocean, you should be able to find a decent amount of acreage just about anywhere.

Perhaps invest in a climate dome. That's not really realistic range to look for.


If you want relatively cool summers in the PNW, those can be found-- and yes, it'll be sunny... for most part (some years will be a complete miss).

Port Angeles, WA will be on average "hot" @ 68 degrees, but it's in the rain shadow so it's not as wet as you'd like. Forks, Wa might actually work on paper as it's really cloudy and rainy (almost 10 ft a year!) all the time (but a tad warmer than PA)-- however, the city itself is a hellhole. One that we Washingtonians actively discourage people to stay away from because it's such a sad excuse for a town.
