We live in the Pacific Northwest. As you probably know from the Twilight Series, we get lots of rain. When I say lots of rain, it is a bit of an understatement. We get tons of rain. More days than not the sky is overcast. When I first moved to Washington State, it was a bit depressing. I wanted to sit inside and watch HD TV Kirkland or sleep all day. As much as I enjoy watching television during the day and resting, especially with the sound of raindrops on a tin roof, I quickly realized that it was not an ideal lifestyle. I think part of what shyed me away from getting motivated is moving from somewhere where we had little rain. I just had absolutely no idea how to deal with it. I was completely unprepared and did not have any rain gear. I learned a little bit from the locals. I have actually grown to love the weather and climate where we live. The Pacific Northwest is definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth. If you have a raincoat, you must come visit!
