Those low clouds give me the creeps.

Winters are super difficult for me here - ultra dark, ultra gray, low hanging clouds, feels like a big groggy chunk of time. There’s been years we don’t see the sun for 3 months… and locals know summer doesn’t start till July 5…

Seattle is ranked the most depressed city, and the most anxious lol ugh

I have been in western Washington for 20 years and I feel like even in that short time the climate has noticeably shifted. While the June gloom phenomenon is still a thing, it seems like we now have about a 50/50 chance where the beautiful weather lasts from April to October. I will admit though, that I have enjoyed winters in New England more, because they have those brilliantly sunny days even though it is wicked cold outside.

I've heard that about the Seattle area. I've never talked with anyone who's lived there, though. I'm sorry that the environment is depressing in winter.

Huh. For me it’s relaxing, but I grew up in the PNW.
