Seattle ranks 9th in U.S. News and World Report's best cities to live

Being within the top 10 of any sort of (positive) ranking is pretty good. Even ninth place isn't so bad -- though it doesn't feel great to be trailing Portland.

According to U.S. News and World Report that's where Seattle places in this year's round up of the best places to live in the U.S.

After analyzing 125 metro areas in the country to find the best place to live based on metrics like quality of life, the job market, value of living there, and people's desire to live there, Seattle clocked in at ninth, with an overall score of 7.2.

In terms of spread across the top 10, Seattle's not that far behind the lead city -- Austin with 7.6 -- and even ties with No. 8, Portland for overall score.

2. We came out here

a little over 30 years ago with the military with no intention of staying. Well...I'm still here and still loving the area.

3. Visited Seattle two years ago and Portland last year. We were in a relay from Portland to the coast

last August.

Thousands of people from Portland volunteered to help out with our relay. I thank you all. Loved Powel's bookstore and the food trucks.

Also loved Seattle and all the coffee shops and the Pike St market and the Chihuly glass and garden museum.
