GT Friends!

I need information on what it's like in the Pacific Northwest. Do you like it? What cities are your favorites and why? What is terrible about it? What is wonderful?

I'm job-hunting, because it is that time of year, and one of my focus areas is this region of the country this year. For one, it is on the West Coast, a place I'd prefer to stay for a variety of reasons. For another, it looks like there are a number of interesting jobs there.

So ... thoughts? Let me have them! I thank you in advance for your thoughts.
