Hah, I love the weather here! And I'm actually in a dandy mood today.

I just think nonsense like this is, as I said, pitiful.

Remember, if you rent it's not a home, it's a hovel.

I like having steel grey skies many days of the year in the winter. I'm quite fair skinned and do not like tons of sunshine.

Pfft. Seattle has so much to offer that it is as Tim described - pitiful that people would need to affirm their choice of where to live a national survey.

I like the cloudy days as well. I've realized in the last few years that what I dislike the most about summer isn't the heat (that's second), it's the brightness. My eyes much prefer the diffused gray skies to bright sunshine. Summer sun literally hurts my eyes.

(Before anyone starts throwing out snide comments about Washington not having real heat, I lived in Texas for 30 years -- I know heat. :? )

The whole country is geocentric. I'm sure the #4 city thought they should be #3 and so on and so on.

It's pretty funny. Every place has it's pluses and minuses. Not sure if there really is a "Best Place". Of course...we'd all like to believe that utopia is just a move away from wherever we might be...even if it's within the same area.

I'm not so sure why so many people picked Denver. I can undesrtand San Diego I guess...but Denver? I have a feeling that when people "choose" Denver, that they actually envision a place like Boulder. Who cares if they have 300 days of sunshine a year. It's referred to as "West Kansas" for a reason. The smog is HORRIBLE and...ok...so there is good skiing close by.

Yeah...having spent much of my life in So. Cal....I have wondered what it would be like to have more sunshine up here....only catch is that if the weather really was "pleasant" here...so many other things would suck as the whole Puget Sound area would have So. Cal. sprawl. (much worse than now). Not to mention...the rain cleans the air nicely. If it didn't rain, you'd never get to see the mountains due to increased pollution from increased population.

Imagine the traffic here if the population was the same as L.A. and the surrounding cities. Yuck.

Oh...and WRT sunglasses...I think that it's much brighter here and sunglasses are more necessary as 1. people get used to "dimmer" skies so the sunny days seem that much brighter...and especially 2. When there is a sunbreak during a rainstorm while driving, the roads reflect the sun and can be BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT!

Personally, I have a tough time with the overcast weather. I certainly doesn't make me think any less of Seattle as a city however...and the PNW is still one of the most beautiful (populated) places in the U.S. IMO.
