When I was out there all I saw were cars with the bumper sticker: "People in Seattle don't tan -- they rust".
A visiting businessman was in Seattle and came out of his hotel to sadly observe it raining again for the tenth day straight. A small boy came walking by decked out in a slicker, golashes, etc. -- full rain gear. The businessman asked the boy, "Does the sun ever shine here?"
The boy answered, "How should I know, I'm only 9 years old."
