Moving from Canada to US -- any tips on making the change more smooth?

I'm moving from Vancouver BC to Seattle WA in a few months, and although the move itself is only 3 hours away it's like a whole different country! What tips can you give to make the change more smooth?

The move will be me, my two cats, and a U-Haul full of stuff. I have dual citizenship so everything has been taken care of on the legal front, and a number of friends on the ground in Seattle. I'll be going down ahead of time and to find and rent a place, and looking for a job (with enough savings and freelance work that I won't have to panic about it).
So my question is: do you have any tips for moving to another country, specifically the US? Usually an in-country move just means finding a new hairdresser, but this is way bigger. What will make the move easier? What have I forgotten? Thanks for any tips!
