Just say NO to Western WA, its chocked full of people now and literally cannot keep your shoes clean 8 months of the year. 40 inches of rain since OCT.1,2015. From all indications it appears to be the near norm with weather change. Rain and more rain till you drown in it.

Is the sacrifice of sun worth the trade off of green, water and fishing, etc. I'm so sick of brown, hot and being landlocked from beautiful scenery.

My family has almost all relocated to PNW a so I have strong reasons to consider the Seattle area, and a potential job offer is tipping the scales for us.
Yes, definitely. I'm a Phoenix native, moved here a few years ago and I don't miss the 117 F summers even one tiny bit. The rain does get a bit dreary (especially this year), but just take a vacation somewhere warm and sunny in January or February and that helps a lot.

It's only depressing if you're staring at a cold, gray featureless sky. But try looking below the horizon. When I visit the Seattle area, often now that my daughter is in college there, I'm surprised and delighted by the many rich colors I see in the plants, trees, grass, mosses and flowers. So I think of the area as Hawaii, with British weather. I'd love to try that for awhile. I'm closing in on 40 years in Denver, and every year it seems browner, dustier and more drab. For over half the year, it's like living in an ash tray! And I can't even take solace in the blazing sunshine now that I'm more familiar with cataracts and the many varieties of skin cancer tumors.

I'd trade the Sunbelt for the PNW in a fraction of a minute, with no regrets. It's a nice place. You actually have the essentials for life and survival there, not piped in and hauled in from thousands of miles away.

It's only depressing if you're an overly-emotional, whiny, psycho robot who blames weather and everything for your sadness and claims to have fake mental disorders from the weather to get attention like seasonal arsehole disorder or bipolarism or whatever and claim you need to take anti-depressants to "get through the day". Is there differences in people's behaviors depending on the weather? Sure. Is the difference so huge to where OMG I can't live my life here because it rains! No unless you're an emotional zombie-fied entitled lame brain who expects people to just walk up to you and smile and invite you over for ice cream cake. Crap, I don't expect people to smile at me all the time, so I just approach them and smile at them. Why does everyone need to approach you? Why don't you approach them? Again, entitled.


Life isn't gonna be a El Macho Peachu tropical beach with martini's in your hand all year round, accept it. Stop being a whiny emotional silly brain and grow a pair and just live your life happily. YOU are in control of your happiness, not some horse crap weather pattern. Jesus.
