Now that I've been here for 15+ years, the cold doesn't bother me anymore. In fact, I don't know if I'd ever want to move back to the South...no skiing down there.
For those of you that don't know (I didn't), eastern WA is completely different that the western side of the state. Two entirely different climates.
Wow. Never knew that about WA! I just know Seattle gets tons of rain, but never know about snow.
My research process has been educational in regards to what sort of weather each region gets, lol.
