I love the Pacific Northwest cause it's so green all year! Wish we had some rain here so we can have water next summer with no rationing. When we moved here in 1987 there was a seven year drought (except for the day the movers came with the furniture!) and we were rationed.
Same to you and sunny travel days ahead!
True, both sun and rain have their advantages and disadvantages. I actually love both climates and could be happy going back and forth regularly. I will say I like more of the wines there, but we have been finding a lot we like the last few years, in Walla Walla, WA (my home town). Saturday we stayed at a different Courtyard and got a 1/2 bottle of wine as our welcome gift and it was a J. LHOR 2009 Cabernet from Seven Oaks Winery. It was really nice and we may have to find some more of that.
