Here in Portland, we average about 20 days per year when it gets above 90. That's 20 days too many but the humidity is a lot lower than in the places mentioned above. I'd be happy if it never got above 72. I find endless days of bright sunshine boring after a while and, unlike for many, the cool gray days are soothing, not depressing. So this is the perfect climate for me. Except for those 90-degree days.

I bet I'd like it there (amongst* all those liberals ;-) as long as the gray days aren't too dark. But alas, too far from loved ones. I hope our next major RV trip will be to the PNW and British Columbia. With a stop at Glacier NP en route (and my beloved Wisconsin and South Dakota), and California on the way back--if they don't close all of their state parks :-( We'll wait till DH is retired coz I'll want 4-6 months for this trip.

* I was deciding between amongst and among and decided to look it up and ran across a most awesome web site for language lovers:
