Pretty sure everyone disparages the Tri-Cities. Because...yuck, Tri-Cities.
You seem to have no problem with disparaging Spokane though.
I nominate you for Mr. Poster Who Sets Everyone’s Teeth On Edge.
I bet you’ll win the title.

I am opposite of you, OP because I seem to have reverse SAD and get down when I have too many sunny days in a row. Luckily I live in the cloud and snow belt so a lot of sun isn't too much of a problem for most of the year! Spokane is actually sunnier than quite a few places around the Great Lakes and has a good deal more sunlight hours than where I live.

I have several friends from my hometown (Syracuse NY) who moved out to the Spokane area for work. They had been told how it was even cloudier than Syracuse but were surprised to find it pretty sunny or at least partly sunny for most of the outside of December-February. It is in the Rocky Mountains and there is a great deal of wildlife and outdoors activities. The only complaints my Syracuse friends have is that the climate is very dry, especially in the summertime and it leads to unattractive 'browning over' of grass/vegetation. There is a lot to do in the area with various festivals, arts/theatre, museums and higher education opportunities. My friends say there is only about 3 feet of snowfall a year and it is spread out over the season and the winters are pretty mild.

If you find winter a difficult season for you then you can try a couple of things. One is to try and find things to do in indoor venues because just staying at home (especially without adult company) can make one feel isolated and down. A second one is looking and trying some winter activities such as snowmobiling, skiing, or something similar. I've learned to hate summer a bit less since I've taken up swimming around in Lake Erie.

Good luck on whatever your decision is and I hope that you are happy with it.

I completely get this. I hated Arizona’s relentless sunshine. It was oppressive.

Nonsense. I have a long-time record of civility and professionalism on this site. It seems to me some on the Spokane board get upset with some provocative back and forth when they disagree. It’s all good.

Thank you. I think I would have reverse SAD somewhere like AZ too! I'm going to try some new things this winter to get out of the house more and see if that helps. I went out a lot when we were in Missoula and never had issues then so it could be related to little kids and not getting out much the past few winters.

Thanks for the additional data about Spokane. That's all good to know. I do think it's a gorgeous place and that helps alot too in being happy in a town. I think I'd definitely prefer it to anywhere else we could reasonably move with my husband's work at this point.
