Take it away, Nick:
|This is my face most days...|
Before I moved out here to Seattle for graduate school I was repeatedly warned about how rainy it tends to be out here. One person even described it as "London-esque". However, when I first visited back in March 2010 (this becomes relevant later), not only was it barely raining, but it was absolutely gorgeous for each of the 4 days I was here. I left here thinking, "where's all this rain people were talking about? It's beautiful here!"
Two years and three months later, I can confirm the well-known Seattle drear. It feels like it's cloudy more often than not, and it's nearly always wet. ALWAYS! Am I just suffering from confirmation bias, or is Seattle's weather always just generally crappy? Well, being the scientist that I am, I sought to answer these interesting and personally-relevant questions.
