go away.

*CAUTION: Minnesotan about to whine about the weather ahead. You’ve been warned.*

Will it ever stop raining in our fair city so we can enjoy autumn? Anyone else considering moving somewhere tropical (like, perhaps, Seattle?)

    Residents of Seattle complain about the rain all the time.

    Sacramentans complain too.

    As a former resident of Minneapolis, I believe you are COMPLETELY justified in complaining about the weather there. It’s not for the weak of spirit.

    I can’t wait to move to CA in a few weeks ;)

    While I’d rather not deal with rain in NYC this weekend, the infernal humidity is ridiculous. I think I’d rather be in MN in the rain.

    I’m in Seattle right now. I’ve lived here all my life. It’s pouring. But I’m cool with rain, makes things grow, puddles are fun.
    I am, however, packing up and moving to St Paul in a few months. Good to know it rains there.

    Yes. Move to Seattle to get away from the rain. Or maybe London. Enjoy London’s characteristically sunny skies or the parched, arid outback of Seattle. That is an excellent idea.

    I thought I read somewhere that Seattle gets about the same amount of precip annually as we do in MN. Obviously we get more of that in the form of snow than they do.

    I think the thing that would get me most about Seattle is the cloudiness, not necessarily the rain. But then I grew up on the other side of the Great Lakes and am used to lots of cloudiness.

    Seattle gets a pretty average amount of rainfall in inches but it just has a ton of overcast drizzly days and very few downpours. Sunny and beautiful today, though.
