I love the Pacific Northwest...but all that rain would be too much for me.
Ann - I'm in N. Ireland and yes we often have rain, day after day. I guess that why we have The Forty Shades of Green
I live in the Pacific Northwest USA and was raised in Southern California until I was 9 years old, also worked there on and off for a few years. If it were not for my granddaughters living here (which of course they don't mind the weather as they grew up here thanks to us) I would get as far away from the rain, moss, toadstools, and coniferous forests as I could get. We have been getting a crazy amount of rain and dark cloudy skies the past few months. At least it is not snowing yet (knock on wood), but actually snow might be a good thing, better than torrents of water. We have been getting flood warnings it seems like every other week.
It doesn't help RLS and the lack of quality sleep to put me even lower in the happiness index. Right now it is dark and the rain is loud, pouring down. I sure would like to see a nice spring or summer day. Forty shades of green lol, I am so sick of green, even sicker of shades of gray colored skies though. But on the other hand there are far worse weather conditions that we don't get here such as hurricanes or below zero temperatures or above 100 F so I will get off my soapbox.
