On the other hand, the "dry side" of Washington hopes for rain on some weeks. It's truly crazy how different each side of the mountains are in Washington, even down to the political beliefs.

Have you lived in any other state?

I personally have not, so my opinion is very one sided, but looking at the, ranking #2 overall is pretty awesome!

Out of 50 States, Washington States rates #2 Overall.

Pat yourself on the Back Washington State, and while you at it, maybe take away a few taxes... Just Saying.


How big is Washington State anyway?

I don't know why I asked that but seemed fitting for this article.

You could have told me that Washington State ranks #2 because we are the birth place of Starbucks. I mean, doesn't seem like much to one person, but it all clicks for me, and I'd react as such...
