I beg to differ.. I lived on the Oregon Coast which was magnificent in beauty clouds or sun.. I cannot think of Seattle being different. On crystal clear it is just breathtaking.. But the clouds and mist create their own type of beauty.. I remember how amazed I was about the way the mist would wrap around the rocks when I drove through the Columbia Gorge into Portland from Hood River.

I hear you on that. It is just that Seattle can get real ugly on a cloudy day. The grey brings out some of the cities worst features, like old factories and smokestacks, (especially south of downtown), and when downtown is only seen below about 600 feet, well let's just say there are a number of buildings over 600 feet. On top of all that, if you are driving in even a light rain, the windshield wipers will obscure any view that might be remaining. I guess my point is that Seattle can be a complete 180 between crystal clear and low clouds and rain.
