Some people get the blues when its raining. Here in Washington State that is not an option. You would be chronically depressed. We do have a higher-than-national-average drug abuse and suicide rate, possibly not a coincidence. However most people are used to all the rain and think nothing of it. This isn’t to suggest that we like the rain, we don’t, its just that we’re a lot more tolerant of it than people elsewhere because we have to be. One effect of all the rain is that we appreciate the sun a lot more than than others do. Lately it has been very sunny and there hasn’t been any serious rain, so everyone seems to be in a good mood.
