What about the tornadoes, thunderstorms, 10" of rain overnight, etc.?

We've had one of the best summers I can remember in the 15 years we've lived in Anacortes. Almost continuous blue skies and sunshine from the middle of May, and still getting it. There have been the odd two or three days when it has been cool and wet, but even today we had blue skies and sunshine but the high was upper 60's. The days are getting noticeably shorter at our northern latitude (about 50 miles south of the US/Canada border).

In our part of Washington, we're very close to salt water. About 2 miles south of the beach-front park where we walk our dogs every afternoon, the water is 60 fathoms deep. The primary source for the water is melting snow from the Cascade mountains, so it's cold. 10 yards off the beach, the water is knee deep, and even now, lees than 50 F.

Sure the winters are dreary. Our local airport weather report is often "800 broken, 1500 overcast, 5 Celsius, 3/4 mile visibility, rain and fog". People who have moved from CA or NM often need psychological counseling!

For a couple of ex-pat Brits, used to the phrase "Summer's on a Wednesday this year. Make sure you don't go for a haircut and miss it altogether", this place is just about the best we can imagine. Three years in Tidewater VA, after getting laid off from Boeing, sure fixed my opinions of the East coast, and they aren't favorable.

My first day at work at NASA-Langley, I headed out from home at about 07:00. It was foggy (OK), 82 degrees F (what, at 07:00?) and there was a thunderstorm rolling through. Was I ever glad to get a phone call from Boeing a couple of years later, asking if I'd like to go back. Just before we left Hampton, the afternoon t/storm stayed overnight. IIRC, we got almost 13" of rain from 16:00 the first day to about 04:00 the next. There's one street in Newport News that dips down under a railroad complex with maybe 8 tracks. where the coal trains from the West VA mining areas bring coal for export. The rain filled up that underpass and floated the rail-bed off its supports.

After my VA experience, I ended up with almost 30 years with Boeing, taking early retirement in 1998. We moved to Anacortes in 1999 and the only way I'm leaving is in a wooden box!

Very Nice!! and to each his own. I live in the south ...oh that's south-ern New England. When it's minus 10 in January and you're driving back and forth to work in the dark and some weather forecaster says "there's 6 more inches of snow coming tonight" on the radio.... I once said to my brother in law in FLA, our winters are like your summers. We run from a heated house to a heated car to a heated office, you run from an a/c house to an a/c car to an a/c office..what's the difference? He said, well at least we don't have to shovel heat

Down south...we complain a day or two at a time throughout the year during uncomfortable weather (heat, hurricane, bugs, frost, etc)...unlike my friends up north, they complain for at least 6 months (continuously) about how miserable the winter weather thanks, I'll take my sandals, shorts and shades in January ,)
