I've got my eye on this varsity/baseball wool/leather jacket. I'll probably have it mid to late April. First I'd like to make the point that Seattle weather has absolutely beautiful since I arrived here one month ago. It's been about 50/50 sunny/cloudy, and there's always a breeze, and the temperatures have been very mild. (This could just be because I live at the top of Queen Anne Hill.) I know that statistically we actually get less annual rainfall than NYC, which is where I'm from. My question is: how long into Spring can I comfortably wear a jacket (in particular a light/medium jacket)? It seems every morning has been cold, and I still see people wearing winter hats. How long will this persist? How warmly do people typically dress in Seattle from the months of May to October?

Hi everyone, I live in Seattle (Queen Anne to be specific), and I was wondering: (1) Whether or not a Vespa would be a great investment, better than a car, taking into account the layout of Seattle, for getting around the city, no major trips, and about as frequent as every weekend, maybe twice a week (2) Coming from NYC and not knowing how to drive, what is the best approach to learning how to drive a Vespa? Is any sort of license required, and where would I go to obtain that license? How long would it take, if I devoted time to learning regularly? Are there any issues specific to Seattle that I should take into account in taking up this project of learning how to ride and purchasing a Vespa? Any general commentary about motorized scooters is also greatly appreciated.

Trying to plan a last minute trip to Vancouver and need some hotel recommendations. Also, it's looking like it's significantly cheaper to fly into to Seattle. Would that make sense to fly into Seattle and then make my way to Vancouver via rental car, bus or train, OR would it be smarter to just pay the extra cost and just fly straight into Vancouver.

Need tips and strategy for getting a rental house. Our rental market is very tight (in north Seattle). Landlords can afford to be picky. At first glance, we don't look like ideal tenants. Our situation: We are putting our big fancy house on the market. We've been wanting to downsize for a long time. Just now, the market timing is very good. Our property is desirable and we can expect a decent price, and equity pay-out at closing. When the house sells, we plan to rent a small house in North Seattle. Looking for a 6 month to 1 year lease. (more detail below...) [more inside]
