    Yeah I like it. Don't enjoy the rain so much, but I hear that is tempory haha
    Love the mountains and just the view in general. Is so cool to wake up and see Mt. Ranier in the background.

    Who knows where I will be in 3 years though. The Army gives me a little choice in that aspect.

    Haha, I don't know about counting on the rain being temporary. The 4 Seasons of Seattle Weather. ;p

    But yes, it's a beautiful state. I'm sure Mt. Ranier affords some excellent hiking territory, too, if that's your sort of thing.

    Yeah, EverDave the rain in pretty constant most of the year...Or at least the overcast greyness. You're kinda seeing Washington at her best now and for the next few months. Winter is pretty depressing and damp...
    Reaper is right though, the Hoh rainforest is absolutely amazing and one of my all time favorite places to be.

    Yeah I got here in December and it was decent. January until just recently has sucked badly. I am hoping for the best lol

    Indoor plants are always a good way to cope with winter

    What do you grow indoors? I would love to have some in the house.

    Put it on a homemade "Humidity Tray". I hear it can help.


    Plus I just spotted this little sprout coming up. I think I have a winner here

    I don't live in Washington, but I live in a pretty similar place, climatically speaking, anyway (we just don't have the forests, and our summers are probably a bit cooler). I grew up in this sort of weather, and you will probably grow to like it too (I do, anyway). It really makes you appreciate the few warm, sunny days! The worst parts are probably the wet and dark winters, but that's only a 1/4 of the year!
    Good luck, I hope you warm to your new, green home!
    Also, if you're in Washington, you really don't need the humidity tray! Nature has already provided it
