My brother lives in Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island. He works on planes for the navy, I guess they made the base there because of the sub threat during the cold war. It is a beautiful place, one of the most beautiful places I have seen in the WORLD, I have thought about moving up there. He says it dosen't rain very much, but it is always cloudy. His daughter when she was young had a lot of yeast infections because of the moisture.

I was stationed there for 2 years flying in A-6's. The weather is very damp and the noise is defening on fly days and worse during night ops.

What's "too rainy"? Whidbey is great, tho' property tends to be relatively expensive, and then there's the question of employment.

Grew up on fidalgo Island, the island that connects to whidbey by the bridge ,and it is wet . It is very wet for most folks but I love it and miss it. There's not alot of work on whidbey and it is fueled mostly by the naval base. I loved hearing the planes flying but then I go to as many air shows as I can, and love the blue angels:) Prices for land is expensive but worth it. If you have a questions I will try to help.

You might also send to the CC for brochures and contact the Extention Service for more info.

I understand that the island gets about half the rainfall of Seattle? Is that correct?

Good luck and get used to riding ferries. LQ

Yeah that's the place I was stationed!! :haha:

Now I remember why my plane always looked so clean and new when it was actually 25 years old.
