Does it rain as much in Eugene as it does in Portland/Salem area? Im am trying to find the part of Oregon that would provide the most nursing job opportunities without getting soaked most of the year. At first I looked at Seattle and Portland but these places seemed too dreary for someone from Nashville, Tn. Medford may be a bit small for me; how is Eugene?

Western Oregon is wet. If you have water soluble skin, go east of the Cascades.

Thanks, I have been recovering from a very bad case of soluble skin syndrome, I've heard the southwest is dryer though.

Thanks for the help, I have narrowed my search to the Eugene/Corvallis area. I had considered moving to San Diego at first but I realized the only prospect for owning something would be a run down house in the barrio. I have searched all the way up the Pacific coast but had not checked out Eugene. The property there seems like a bargain compared to SD so real ownership is a possibility. I am from Nashville Tn where the humidity in the summertime prevents most outdoor activity and spring and fall seem like they are only a couple of weeks. I like to rock climb and mountain bike and it seems like there are good opportunities for both. My wife and I are nurses so we need a city nearby for good employment so seems like Eugene just might fit the bill. I was just a little freaked out about rain associated depression.
Thanks,
Brent
