You May Live In Seattle If...

You know the state flower (Mildew)
You feel guilty when you don't recycle.

You consider swimming an indoor sport

You know more than 10 ways to order coffee.

You have no concept of humidity without precipitation.

You feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant.

You use the phrase "sun break" and know what it means.

You've actually used your mountain bike on a mountain.

You know more people who own boats than air conditioners.

You think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists.

You knew immediately that the view out of Frasier's window was fake.

You know the difference between Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye salmon.

You switch to your sandals when it gets about 60, but keep the socks on.

You can taste the difference between Starbuck's, Seattle's Best, and Tully's.

You've stood on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "Walk" Signal.

You are well versed in the difference between Japanese, Chinese and Thai food.

You understand that if it has no snow or has not erupted, it is not a real mountain.

You notice "the mountain is out" when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it.

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

You put on your shorts when the temperature gets above 50, but still wear your hiking boots and parka.

In winter, you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark -- while only working eight-hour days.

You never go camping without waterproof matches and a poncho.

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

Yup. I bet Jake would love this- his family moved up to Seattle around 1980, and they've been there since.
