I love it!!!!! you are all so funny... I have spent a lot of time in Nevada and in Western Wa... Gimme Wa anyday... granted you in Nv may get more sun but remember those 110+ deg days in the summer? 85 and blue skies here. All that rain we get in the spring.... brings the green and the colorful flowers. Can't beat that...when it rains a bit much in NV... you get wet sand and flooding. As I have mentioned before... the desert has it beauty... but so does W.WA. Just depends on what you want.

You are too funny Jenbar.
I know it. Humor is a good thing on a message board

The pics were taken in March and April of 2006. April showers bring May flowers. Much too early for tank tops and flip flops don't you think?
I know. I was there then - I know the "spring" weather well... wet, chilly, drizzly... 45/50 degrees. Ohhh, but people do start to wear flip flops then... they think their wishful thinking will bring out the good weather. Of course, they are unsuccessful - but it's fun to watch anyway - LOL!

I agree with what most people have said so far. Compared to say SE DC, or the Bronx, the U-district looks like the rich end of town. Compared to the rest of Seattle..., it is a little more grundy. I've heard mixed things about bums in the area. Some people say they're as friendly and polite as bums can be (tho I think "god bless" is really just bum speak for "thanks for nothing prick"). I've also heard some strange stories from the women I know about being harassed on the bus and things like that. For the most part, I'd say a person walking around at night shouldn't run into any trouble.

The problem with LIVING in the U-district comes with the petty theft and vandalism. I would tell your son to avoid leaving valuables in his car if he parks on the street, and get a couple locks if he has a nice bike.
