What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Dark and dreary. Rains a ton. We personally prefer the dark and dreary weather, but this was a little much for us. Cold most of the year Homes do not have air conditioning. We had one week of it getting over 90 degrees and then it cooled back down and we were fine. - May 2017

Overcast winters, beautiful moderate summers - Aug 2015

I cannot sidestep the issue of rain. It rains for several months and can be dark and could seem relentless at times. When it was sunny, though, it was unbelievably beautiful. People don't waste those days - when the sun shines, people are very active and get out to enjoy nature, parks, festivals, shopping, cafe culture, etc. It is cool to downright chilly much of the year but mostly comfortable in the later spring and early fall and is amazing most of July and August. - Jun 2014
