    No actual numbers? Percentage don't always tell the whole story.

    Statistics show that the city is becoming wetter: the current annual rainfall average of 952 millimeters reflects an increase of 11 mm.[70] Seattle receives the largest amount of rainfall of any U.S. city of more than 250,000 people in November, and is in the top 10 through winter, but is in the lower half of all cities from June to September. Seattle is in the top 5 rainiest U.S. cities by number of precipitations days, and it gets the least amount of annual sunlight of all major cities in the lower-48 states. Thunderstorms are rare,[71] as the city reports thunder on just seven days per year.[72] By comparison, Fort Myers, Florida reports thunder on 93 days per year, Kansas City on 52, and New York City on 25. However, Seattle was not listed in a study that revealed the 10 rainiest cities in the continental United States.


    All those rainy, cloudy, cold days cant be that good and happy, lack of sunshine makes for a lot of depressed people, I thought San Francisco climate was cold, if your moving from Minneapolis to Seattle that is one thing, but Florida or southern California to Seattle is a much bigger change, sunshine states to cloudy states could interrupt ones circadian rhythms and alter mood, a clean car would be a problem too. I think some people who do these "studies" want the gay community to move around, migrate the country instead of the usual gay hub cities where it is already overcrowded

    I moved to Seattle for grad school after doing my undergrad in sunny Santa Cruz, CA. I moved during the summer, so I didn't get much of a climate shock. Summers in Seattle are amazing: really long days and temperatures in the 70s. But that only lasts for about 8 weeks out of the year. Then the typical Seattle doom and gloom hits.

    I gotta tell ya, not seeing the sun for days and weeks on end got really depressing. Having to wear a rain coat from September through June/July also sucks. And my GOD did my car get moldy within the first 6 months of living there - the constant drizzle keeps everything moist all the time. And don't even get me started on the infamous "Seattle Freeze". You couldn't pay me to go back and live up there.

    Seattle is just so played out at this point.
