Since I moved into Yakima WA on March 2012:

1) I have not worn a heavy winter jacket within the city limit during last winter,
2) I have not turned on AC in either my vehicle and my apartment (on the ground floor) this summer.
3) The City of Yakima had only one snowstorm in the past winter,
4) I have not had one rainy day from sunrise to sunset,
5) I have not had one day without a little peeking from the sun.
6) My apartment complex opened its swimming pool on the first week of May and has not yet closed as of this writing.,
7) I have not gotten a real humid day since moving here,
8) I have not seen any unwanted bug (No stink bug here)
9) I have not opened my umbrella,
10) What a comfortable weather !!!

Yakima, like much of Central and Eastern Washington, has a fabulous climate. I find it a little hard to believe you haven't used AC though. I was there in late April and had the AC on in my car. Then again my car gets hot pretty easily.

Well, when I started my car engine, I turned on AC to "kill" heat inside my car for few minutes and then turned it off and rolled down windows.

Supposed if I would be dressed up, I must turn on AC. I have not yet dressed up this summer.

it's funny because I still have my AC on in my car in SEATTLE and it's been on since May. Yakima is way hotter, so my AC would always be at max there.

Me too! I'll have air on for at least one more month, maybe two.

1-2 July it was 106 degrees.
19 - 26 July was 100 or more.
Half of August was in the 90's, many of those days in the high 90's.
10 days this month have been in the 90's.

Yakima is nearly as hot as where I used to live in inland SoCal. When you say you haven't used your AC are you leaving out any small details.....such as your AC is broken?

You have often mentioned your like for Central and Eastern WA. I haven't been to Yakima or the Tri-Cities yet. I did research them a bit. I'm surprised you don't like CA, especially SoCal. Not everywhere is expensive. My town of Temecula was moderately priced and quite a nice town for people into that type of area. Driving around the Tri-Cities on Google looks pretty much the same as driving around the inland areas of CA. Maybe it looks a lot different in person.

The landscapes of Eastern Washington are nice and beautiful in their own ways, but the climate is a bigger draw. So much drier than Western Washington and featuring a true four season climate with cold, snowy winters and hot, dry summers, and appropriate shoulder seasons. I enjoyed today's thunderstorms but I'm so sick of being constantly damp here most of the year. That doesn't happen east of the cascades.

If you don't wear a winter coat in Yakima in the winter time you must spend about 99% of your life indoors. It also gets hot as balls in the summer. Some of the climate posts are ridiculous. It is dry though, because it's a DESERT.
