    I'm pretty much a lifelong Washington state resident, mostly near Seattle. I also spent a little over a year in Wisconsin, but I was an infant at the time. And, no, it doesn't rain up here as much as most people think. It's just gray a lot, especially this time of year.

        You DID get out of Michigan just in time. The job market there is absolutely dreadful. And I'm looking forward to going to Texas, but I will miss my little town in Georgia. We lived in Texas for almost a year in Dallas, and I loved it. The whole Texas pride thing is great.
