For those of you thinking of moving here, this is what you'll be looking at 8-9 months of the year.
















Note the gloomy clothing colors.


Before the rain really started coming down, here's the ground.


Okay, NOW it's starting to come down. This pic was taken only minutes after the last one.


This (and the next few) are from the balcony of the Paul G. Allen Center.










Gotta love sitting in traffic in the rain.





Hopefully in the future, I'll get other places besides UW.

I realize your point in posting this (referencing from pwright1's Summer thread) - but I do have to say...

This only makes me more anxious to go.
I have always been naturally happier and more at ease with myself and my surroundings - driving especially for some reason - when the weather is like this.

Here in Oklahoma, we've been looking at this for the last three days or so. I was dissapointed when it ended today. I was emersing myself in it.

I understand it gets old. I understand it's not for everyone. But personally, I think it's beautiful - and I can't wait to wake up to it every morning.

Thanks for posting! (the campus is beautiful - and I love the gloomy-day clothes)

Wow! Aren't these sights so beautiful? -- they're so filled with different lights and textures, moods, temperatures, variations of wetness and dryness.
Isn't it interesting that not one person is carrying an umbrella? So I guess they're not very worried.
CDMOK, thanks for your reference to pwright.
And drizzle and clouds "get old" only to those who should probably live where there aren't drizzle and clouds... For those of us who love them, waking up in the morning to that weather makes us smile.

nice pictures...

I'd never live there though. And not because of the weather.

That looks like an umbrella to me.

P.S. I don't like the gray and clouds, and I'm moving out as soon as I can.

No, the drizzle and clouds get old because human beings are organic creatures and require sun and light, like most non-noctural life forms. Our breast cancer rates are higher than the rest of the country - vitamin D deficiency may very well be a contributory factor.

And honestly, I do love me a nice fall day with drizzle and grey, when the crows are out and the spider webs glisten with dew. I love being cozy next to the fire with the rain splashing against the window panes, making potato soup and drinking hot cider. . .

. . . but even to a lifer, it can get old.

Well, I will admit that I intend on stocking up on Vitamin D before heading that way.

It sucks to not have 911 dollars.


That's the price for a one way ticket from Seatac to Narita.


The only thing holding you back is YOU.
