    Which do you choose, and why?


    Probably Atlanta. It's hot and the traffic sucks, but its the South, and I'm Southern. I'd probably feel a lot more at home there.

    Atlanta. I like warm weather and don't like too much rain.

    Been to both cities and wasn't overly fond of either but if I had to choose it would be Seattle just because it seemed friendlier and the weather is more tolerable.

    Atlanta in the winter, Seattle in the summer. If that can't be arranged, Honolulu.

    I don't run much anymore but my knee can take the strain better when I run in hot climates. Never been to the US, let alone the two cities but that would be my decider.

    Easily Atlanta. Georgia is my home, my family is here, and the weather is awesome.

    Seattle:

    3% unemployment
    Tom Douglas Restaurants
    2 Dem senators
    Dem governor
    Jim McDermott in Congress, so popular he often has no opposition, and needs to fund raise enough to buy business cards
    Small companies that are employing some folks: Starbucks, Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Costco, Paccar ...
    Dick's Hamburgers
    Ivar's fish 'n chips
    Guys who throw fishes at Pike Place Market (not actually good way to handle seafood, so it's a throw-away fish)
    Lake Washington (would not live anywhere that had no view of it)

    Great!!! coffee (not Starbucks)

    Well to be honest, it's rained like it is Seattle the past year. We've already got over a years worth of rain.
