My intention for this node cluster is to put a ton of links to nonexistent nodes, so others may take chunks of this documentation project out of my hands. Please. If you know of good nodes that need to get linked in here, /msg me and I'll hook it up.
Despite its reputation as a place where natives grow webbed feet, less precipitation
falls here than in many Eastern United States
towns like Chicago
and New York
. I think what causes the reputation is the fact that for 9 months of the year, we have tin grey skies
and a light mist -- just enough to cause a little melancholy for those who are susceptible. Average rainfall is between 30 and 40 inches. Temperatures are moderated by the Puget Sound
, and storms are moderated by the Olympic Mountains
which shield the sound
from major storms from the west. Snowstorms are very infrequent in the winter, and temperatures over 95 degrees are very infrequent in the summer. All in all, a lovely environment.
- Wettest Months: November through December, averaging about 6 inches per month
- Driest Months: June through August, averaging a little over 1 inch/month
- Warmest Month: August, averaging about 75 high, 55 low
- Coolest Months: December and January, averaging 45 high, 35 low
One of the reasons to move here. The Puget Sound Basin
is amazingly beautiful country. Carved out by the last Ice Age
and kept interesting by the fault line
Puget Sound ♦ Lake Washington ♦ Olympic Mountains ♦ Mount Rainier
Because of the particular geography
of Seattle -- that is, there are big swaths that are difficult to get to from other swaths -- the neighborhood
s used to be very different from each other. Now, with the Belltown
ification of Seattle, everything's dissolving into the same look: Thrown-up pastel condos
. See Seattle while it still has a shred of interest, kids...
Northgate ♦ Ballard ♦ Wallingford ♦ University District ♦ Fremont ♦ Queen Anne ♦ Belltown ♦ Capitol Hill ♦ Downtown ♦ Pioneer Square ♦ International District ♦ Ranier Valley ♦ West Seattle
Just a few here...But I'm probably not remembering them all. /msg me, folks.
University of Washington ♦ Seattle Pacific University ♦ Seattle University ♦ Cornish College of the Arts ♦ Art Institute Of Seattle
Seattle Culture, Happenings, & Attractions
. And being polite. Okay, it may not be limited to only that. There's also complaining about Californians
The Battle of Seattle ♦ Seattle Mardi Gras ♦ Seattle's Best Coffee ♦ Seattle Bands ♦ Bumbershoot ♦ Space Needle ♦ Seattle Center ♦ Seattle Monorail
