But still, Seattle literally had only one day that reached 75 degrees and higher so far this year for 2011 and since Late September 2010 and that is a long time period.

Instead you should read all the other recent stuff I wrote about Seattle weather/climate instead of focusing on that one tiny typo.

I really like a good mix of clouds and sun and don't know how I'd react to the PNW weather. Unfortunately there isn't anyway to know until you actually experience it for a longer periods.

I think most people over there just go about with their lives and appreciate the sunshine when it shows up, and try to find ways to accept and tolerate the extended cloudy/rainy periods.

Plus, there are plenty of positive things about the Seattle/PCNW to make it much easier to deal with the weather and worthwhile to get through it.

Also, there are plenty of people that like sunny/dry weather but also cloudy/rainy weather at the same time like me. However, I do find Seattle/PCNW to get a bit too cloudy and not sunny enough sometimes and sometimes it does not have that balance. But other times it does have a good balance of sunny/dry and cloudy/rainy.

Overall, to enjoy living there someone has to not always dislike cloudy/rainy weather. Someone also has to find plenty of things to like about Seattle/PCNW.

I did not see this website link but there are many reasons why people that live in Seattle would put up with the clouds and rain, including me.

While I am still enjoying New York right now, I still miss Seattle today.

I especially miss my apartment over there!

The monthly rent I pay for a great 1 bedroom apartment I got in Seattle with a balcony would get me only a studio in the South Bronx in New York...

I definitely would put up with some cloudy/rainy weather for the positive things in Seattle.

Seattle is worth the rain and and clouds. Personally, it is not that bad to me. I lived there for a year and I loved it.

That says a lot being from Florida. I had a few people in Seattle ask me, "Why did you leave Florida for this?"

I miss the rain and clouds, I love the gray skies at times. It hardly rains here btw. We go weeks and weeks without a touch of rain, just sun all the time. Sun if overrated and it can be extremely uncomfortable for much of the year, unless you worship the sun.

Wash State is so beautiful compared to Florida, then again different strokes for different folks. I fell utterly in love with Seattle my first day there. The mountains, lakes, ocean, rivers, etc, etc.

I even miss the "Sun breaks", that was just enough sun for me.

I think the good Lord did right by Seattle and making it a bit rainy and gray. For one thing, I was not able to take for granted the beauty there everyday, and when the sun came out it made it all worth waiting for to see once again. I mean you can see the mountains clearly, go out for walks, ( I miss Seward Park), etc..

When it is sunny and clear, Seattle to 'me' is the most beautiful city I've ever been in.

That is just my personal outlook on it.

Are you talking about Seattle or Florida?

Inches or days? The post I quoted said Seattle goes weeks and weeks without a touch. That doesn't seem accurate with most of what I've read.

July through late August, or even early September is our dry period. Most years rain is very rare during that time.
