Well, keep in mind, it's very rainy on the west side and much drier on the east side, in the "rain shadow". A lot of people move to Sequim (pronounced squim) because it is much sunnier there due to the mountains keeping that Pacific jet stream at bay. Sequim area is really , really gorgeous! Lots of great pasture land and Olympic national park in your backyard!

Ask me anything about Washington. I know it all! (yes, I am a know -it - all)

Yeah, Sequim area is where I'm looking, actually. Lol I LOVE rain, actually, which is why I want to move up there. Arizona is way too dry for me.

Wait until you've spent a MONTH in it, nonstop, then we'll see how much you love the rain!!!!

You're talking to the person who has been out working or riding in every major storm/shower we've had this summer. I'm also the one who goes outside in shirt-sleeves, jeans and bare feet in the middle of a snow storm (didn't walk in the snow, but stood on the porch and watched my mutt playing in it ).

I seriously want to move right now, but I can't. :-/

Well, if you need any info from me, just ask. I have lived her 50 years! If you don't mind rain, and lots of it (remember, our rain is more like mist, that goes on til Christmas! And more). Snow? Yeah, sometimes. But when it does, it's a mess because we dont' have a lot of snow removeal equipment, and everywhere are hills! And the snow is wet (called Cascade Concrete).
But the skiing can be nice. I can be at the local ski area in 45 minutes! Downtown Seattle in 12 minutes.

I really sound like a braggart!

I would love to learn to snowboard. I tried skiing once and failed epically. I can wakeboard, but I can't water ski to save my life.

I won't drive anything but a four-wheel-drive, so I'm always prepared. Hehe.

I look down from the chair lift and see the snow boarders rolling around in the snow and they look like "grubs" in the snow. I say , "Skiing is the new snowboarding". Meaning, that snowboarding is a trend that may have run it's course.
Well, not really, but I want two sticks on my legs, not one plywood plank!

Lol! Like I said, tried skiing once and ended up with a badly twisted knee and the embarrassment of having my ski instructor carry me back to the lodge (he was super cute, though). However, I can (or used to be able to) wakeboard quite well and have only seriously hurt myself once (was showing off for some friends and did a jump off a 3ft wake and came down on the front edge of my board).

Oh man that's just beautiful. I can't wait to see such things in person - i'm taking a road trip up to seattle next week to look around. I so want to move there or some place that's green and rainy instead of this horrible dry desert. Hahahaha
