A social phenomenon commonly found in the Seattle area. It concludes the majority of Seattle residents as snobby, cold, unfriendly people with a fake-polite exterior. Many people move here with the impression that Seattleites are friendly and laid-back but upon moving quickly realizing how superficial and forced that "friendly" exterior really is. There is alot of debate as to where this social dysfunction comes from. Some say it's the nerdy tech population, some say it's the scandinavian culture, some say it's the weather, and some even say it's the transplants fault.
Transplant: Hey have you heard of the seattle freeze?
Local: No. People here aren't unfriendly. Maybe the problem is you.
Transplant: Let's hang out sometime.
Local: Umm.... I have that thing at the place at that time.
