You get used to the rain, it's the overcast that some people can't handle. Our winters are pretty mild compared to most of the US. And our summers are ****ing spectacular! No other place i would want to be in the summer than the Pacific NW. I always tell people, if you're going to visit, do it in the summer.

Another thing. If you don't like the rain so much move up the coast a little where you get into the rain shadow of the Olympics and it isn't all that bad.

It's a small price to pay to keep everything green and keep it from getting any more crowded!

Despite the number of gray and rainy days, Seattle still gets less rainfall annually than most eastcoast cities. As someone else said, it rains but very rarely pours. And the absence of the sun just helps us appreciate the sunny days that much more. We moved here 12 years ago from the Dallas area, my wife is born and bred Texan, and we would never consider moving back.

when people ask about the weather here, it's hard to explain to them how it can be so beautiful, while still taking into account things like this

Was this the gloomiest weekend in Seattle history? | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News | Weather Blog

if you're from here, you get it

I lived in South Hill Puyallup for 9 years and the rain was no big deal. It was the overcast that killed me. I had S.A.D. most all year long. In 1998 I moved to a place across the mountains where the sun shines a lot, snowy winters and it is nice and hot in the summer. I have been in the Yakima area ever since. I love it here.
