You are right as far as I know. Less sunshine equals more suicide for folks with true depression. Being the norhternmost major city in the lower 48, we have comparatively shorter days in the winter. U of Washington actually identified Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Alaska has the worst suicide rates cuz of their winters.
So jsut bring your light box if you are gonna be here in the winter and prone to depression! And get professional help. This message brought to you by the WA Dept of tourism....
