9 months? I've lived here my entire life (almost) and have never experienced a 9 month winter! I agree that it can be dark for some time though.

This winter was easily 9 months long. Today certainly feels like winter in the middle of July.

We were joking at work today about how our attitudes and energy levels seem to have gone from summer mode back to winter mode. A cloudy, rainy day today for sure.

Although right now (as of about 8:15pm) it is a bit clearer, I can actually see quite a bit of blue sky, and the temperature is at about 65 degrees.

I'll report back, but after living in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Alaska, I don't think winters in Seattle are going to bother me one bit. I hate bitter cold. Give me rain and cool vs. cold and sun any day.

I agree with you on the freezing cold. We had to move to Boston and I thought it would be so much fun. Froze our butts off and moved back. They have thundersnow. Not a fan. Feels like the apocalypse.

That sounds so nice. I'll take that over 10 months of perpetual overcast.

It's not hard to learn to dress for going outside in single-digit freezing weather, but it's so expensive to heat one's home fully that most people have to keep it cooler than they like. Yes you can wear sweaters and wool socks, but it's not very pleasant to have a lot of clothes on indoors all the time.

I grew up with New England winters and didn't mind them much, they're very cold but dry, and the sun comes out more. I prefer walking in the snow to walking in rain, as long as everything is nicely plowed, shoveled, and de-iced. But financially, it's getting harder to afford much heating ....... it used to be easy to find a place that included heat in the rent, but harder now that apartment houses have been modernizing and the heat sources split up between the apartments.
