Re: Thank God I live in Portland. Feel sorry for all you saps who don't.

As I said, Portland is a nice city. I just couldn't take the constant drizzle 9 months out of the year. I know that was Seattle, but isn't Portland's weather very similar? I know the annual precipitation is about the same.

No, actually it's not. Portland only gets about 35" a year, but it is pretty evenly spread out over nine months, although January is usually pretty dry -- and cold for the Pacific Northwest. The summers are absolutely magnificent, however. Humidity quote low -- although it can't compete with Denver, but it beats the pants off of anything east of the Mississippi. Unfortunately, usually the summer does have a couple days over 100 degrees F., but then the humidity is also less than 20%, dangerously low for the temperature.
