Ah, our weather is honestly not all that bad. In fact, judging from the
various sources out there, Seattle actually gets less rainfall overall than
Portland. (ex.,_Washington#Climate) The
worst part is the 8-9 months of constantly-overcast and dreary weather in the
fall, winter, and spring; but, to balance that out, our summers are very,
very nice. And yes, we even get droughts every so often around here! :)

Yikes! No sun for that long? I couldn't do it. I'd probably go bonkers (or
even more so...).
