The weather. Hands-down the absolutely worst thing about Seattle. The shit season starts sometime around mid-September and ends sometime in the beginning of July. During this time you can pretty much expect high temps in the low 50's and low temps in the upper 30's, with constant overcast. The locals often point out that Seattle gets less rainfall (in inches) than most other American cities. But what they don't tell you is that it rains just about all the time! It's this annoying drizzle that sticks around for days on end. And you can't really do anything outdoors because it's just so shitty out there. In the wintertime, you can expect darkness to fall sometime around 4pm. Seeing the sun during wintertime is like finding a needle in a haystack. It's very depressing and I can pretty much guarantee you that you'll feel like a slug during winter.

Anyways, sometime during the first week of July (yes July), the weather will clear up and it will start getting into the low 70's. The locals always brag about how this is the best summer weather in the country. It's not. You still need pants and a warm jacket after sundown. Ironically, this is also the time that the locals start complaining about how hot it is. 75 degrees is too hot for them. The nice weather only sticks around until the beginning of September and then rapidly gives way to another 9-10 months of soul-crushing depressing overcast.

People who've only lived here, are very protective of it. They get offended when you don't think it's the best place ever! But talk to someone who has lived other places and they all agree that it is different here. Depressing (Vit D deficincy), dead inside people who seem to want to look as pastey and pale as possible. The education level is so high that it is virtually meaningless. The colleges are very expensive and many times you can't even transfer your credits to out-of-state universities. Run if and when you can! Fast!

Add to this the no Christianity, and it is dark indeed. But, by golly, they will give a fine memorial for a dead tree!

The only reason why it sucks here now, all the people moving here from other states have pretty much pushed all the original Washingtonians out. I regret coming back because no one I knew growing up is here anymore. LOL It's a stupid complaint but meh.

Every one of these complaints are so invalid and ill-informed, it's fucking laughable! You guys seriously believe that it just rains here all the time? Clearly none of you have ever been to central or eastern Washington. That area consists of high desert, the east slopes of the cascades that are more similar to the Rockies of Montana than anything else, and summer temperatures up to the 100's, winter lows to below zero. That's what makes Washington State one of the best places to live, WE HAVE IT ALL! Rainforest, coastline, high desert, low desert, and some of the most gorgeous mountains in the world. With these come every outdoor activity you can find in any other state, LITERALLY every one. Fucking morons. Oh, and dude that said California is the best, why? NorCal rules, yes, but if you're talking about SoCal you must be just as jaded as the rest of those boring drones. Only thing SoCal has going for them is the nice weather.

My family and I are wanting to move far, far, FAR away from Arkansas and after looking at and researching MANY different places, we have decided on Washington because it is such a beautiful state with many opportunities for our children and is diverse. I can't wait to make the move!! Don't be so down on where you live, you could always be stuck in Hicktown, USA and trust me, that is MUCH MUCH worse than rain!!

Haters gonna hate much? If you don't like it then stay away. I'd rather not be surrounded by haters anyway.

I'm down on the entire US. ;)

I really would love to live in Scotland, just can't afford that right now. But then pretty much anywhere in the UK would be better.

I do admit that we are a better state than most in the US, we do have failings though, mostly in finances.

Worst fishing and hunting laws I've ever worked with. The dept of fish & wildlife has no clue how to actually manage and thing other than fish which they've mostly delegated to the tribal hatcheries.
Upland bird habitat is terrible. If only WDFW would look at Montana, Kansas, South Dakota and Nebraska for ideas about management of theses birds. If they continue in their present pathway there will be no opportunities for hunting, which may be their goal.
Weather I can't complain about except the extreme heat we get in eastern Washington for about 2 months. After that it's great...really a 4 season area. Great berry picking, good fruit gathering I our garden and at Green Bluffs. Skiing is great, 5 resorts close to our house, and more in Montana, BC and Alberta.
It's ok here but we want to return back home to ALASKA, our real home.

Washington does not "suck."

What sucks is people moving here from everywhere and making it hard on us born here.

I am so sick of these crotchety ass uptight people here! Washingtonians are just like thier lame ass northern counterpart (Canada) that it's difficult to distinguish between the two. I am from southern California and those of you talking trash about it, FUCK YOU! We have the highest standard of living! Southern California has nice homes, nice weather, nice people and lots of activies. That's why most of the rich and famous live in Southern California. Also, when have you ever heard a song composed about Washington? I hear countless songs produced about california. Sounds like sour grapes like those you use in your cheap Washington wine.

I'm gonna be hated for this.. I visited cause my loves' parents live in seattle. Always wanted to visit, and so i spent 2weeks in april without a problem no rain, and lovely skies. If i had to hate at all its cause the highway into the mountains scared me so bad i was shaking.. Might have been the snow over the pass...
