I have lived in western Washington my entire life - 18 years an hour south of Olympia and the last 21 two to three hours north of it. Western Washington is rainy I guess. But that is why it is so gorgeous and green here!
The weather in general is mild. Not too hot and not too cold. Yes, it rains sometimes but not all the time. Having grown up here, I am used to it. It doesn't seem like a reason not to live here at all to me.
Ocean, rivers, lakes, mountains, trees, tons of educational and birth choices, lots of outdoor sports, liberal politically - it is all good.
Olympia is also good in that you can get to bigger cities like Seattle or Portland easily up an hour or down two hours on I-5.
