WE LOVE IT HERE –
RAIN OR SHINE.
Even though we are widely known for our seemingly endless rainfall, Seattle actually sees less annual precipitation than cities like Houston, Chicago or New York City. With all the rain, the eco-system surrounding Seattle is lush and filled with life, energy and natural beauty. The ever-present water and humidity is our inherent inspiration for steam.
We love being outdoors. Consequently there are more people in Seattle who bike to work compared to any other U.S. city of similar size. The affinity for active, outdoor living and the versatility of the bike as a means of transportation inspired Seattle police department to create the first bicycle patrol in the country.
