It rains about 9 months out of the year. The rest of the year it's so hot there are forest fires galore. I was born and raised here and I'm moving to California as soon as I can afford it.
Speaking of money, it's extremely expensive to live here. The people are super unfriendly on the streets. Especially if they can tell you're not from around here. I've unfortuneately found myself doing the same thing more and more recently.
I pay over a grand a month for a small studio. The buses always make me late for work. And the drivers here are atrocious.
The lattes however will make you stay forever. And once you find your niche(if you ever do) you'll probably never leave.
If you move to Seattle, don't expect it to be grand. Good luck.
Oh shit man, its the sun, it show's like once year in Seattle.
It also happens to be a haven to people with -all- interests and styles of life, as shown by another definition to Seattle.
And ohh yeah, we're smart, too.
Home of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Safeco Field/Seahawk Stadium, Boeing Field, and some great views out into the mountains, especially Mt. Rainier.
