  • Depends on what part of washington you are thiking about moing to. I live in eastern washington and i love it. its cold and snowy in the winter but summers are awsome here as where i live we sit on the columbia river and there is so much to do. western washington is a bit wet all the time lol as its closer to the coast line but still wounderfull. Iv lived here for the last 4years but grew up in central oregon which is also great lol. I lived with my husband in texas for a while out side of fort hood cuz he was millitairy we liked it ok but we sure missed home. what part are you guys thinking about moving to in washington?

  • Spokane?
    I live in Seattle. Hopefully you get more snow than rain. It's pretty, lots of water but I don't like the gray. It's gray a lot of the year. Summer is short.

  • My family lives in Tacoma and yeah, it's pretty rainy. But I live in Delware and I would take the West Coast any day. There is so much to do in WA, and the area around Tacoma/Seattle is beautiful. I don't see how anyone could not love it. The culture and people are different there too. In a very good way.

  • I live in Southwest Washington, close to Portland. I love it here! I am originally from Long Beach, CA. Been in Washington for 4 years. But I have things to do all around me to the South and the North. The Spring and Summer here are BEAUTIFUL. Greenery all year long and fresh air!! It does rain a lot but it makes you appreciate those sunny days like you have been presented a gift!
