Weather in the Pacific NW(taken from Jeff Foxworthy)

You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer & Elk season (Fall)

You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain," and "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers”

You have no concept of humidity without precipitation

You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through the cloud cover

Use the statement "sun break" and know what it means
