I have lived here in Seattle for a year now and although the rain is depressing what is more depressing is the amount of people who nothing but complain about the weather. Its like Seattle is nothing but complainers.You decide to still live here its your own fault if you are depressed.
How about those that lost their jobs and can no longer pay the mortgage because of it. Not everyone who lost their homes was because they bought more than they could afford. Did you ever think about that before you start categorizing everyone as irresponsible home owners.
