I am born and raised in Phoenix, and have lived for periods of time in LA, Austin, Minneapolis, Roanoke, Couer d'Alene and Sacramento.  Newsflash, weather sucks everywhere, and is nice everywhere.  You adapt.  If you can't, move.  I have liked everywhere I have lived, but only feel at home in Arizona.  The nice thing about summer in Arizona is the nights.  100 degrees at Midnight is a great time to swim.

Paleorific: Almost through my first year in Seattle,  I had to scrape my windshield once this winter...

Don't let that fool you. In January 2012, we had an ice storm so bad many parts of Seattle were without power. One friend was powerless for 6 days. It does get cold and frozen here, just not all winter long like other places.

I visited Seattle once and saw a club advertising "Live Nude Girls!" down near the waterfront.

/I was with a live, clothed one on the way to the fish market

//We both made ironic remarks

Bonobo62: And today it's grayer than a corpse's nipple. Fark you, Seattle. I'm moving back to California.

Just as soon as the coffee and antidepressants kick in.

you were expecting something else??

Even assuming the good weather holds up, I'm sure by the beginning of June, while the boobs and stuff will be still be out, the populace will largely slink back to it's passive-aggressive, emotionally distant self.

I lived here for a decade without an invitation to dinner before I realized that it had a name: the Seattle freeze

Having grown up in Phoenix and am currently living in Indiana, I can attest to one simple fact: 120 and low humidity is just as miserable as 95 and 80% humidity. Hot and miserable is hot and miserable, no matter where you are.

It was weird, we treat sunny days like freaking Christmas morning in Seattle. Strangers smiling and greeting each other, the whole bit. Also the women dress like actual women instead of asexual day-hikers. The first day it gets nice, you're like "where the hell have you all been?"

Just wanted to say that people that like things ironically isn't actually irony.  Internal awareness of the creation of the juxtaposition nullifies the irony.

It was awful.

Today is nice.  Cloudy, 60 degrees.

Calmamity: First person to make some lame joke about rain in Seattle sniffs Chris Christie's gas.

The only lame thing about Seattle's rain is how little there is compared to places like Sitka or Forks.
