We’ve always found these lists a bit suspect when they mention up front that we get a lot of rain. Hey guys, we don’t. It’s drizzly and gray and unpleasant at times, but a lot of rain? Not so much.
Here’s what Bloomberg has to say about us:
For our runner-up best city, we turn back to the Northwest to the nation’s spiritual home for coffee and personal computing: Seattle. Residents of Rain City will take the city’s famously prodigious rainfall in exchange for their high average median income, beautiful water-bound locale, and standout clean air. Microsoft and Boeing provide tens of thousands of jobs to the area, for those who can’t toss fish at the Pike Place Market.
Yeah, we’re smart, we have computers, we got water and we toss fish. Oh, and coffee…
Thanks guys, we do love living here.
