I have a job interview in Everett, WA (25 miles north of Seattle). It seems like a cool company and the pay will be better than what I am making now + great benefits. What is the cost of living like? How is the area north of Seattle? I know the music scene is pretty good and I love the climate, scenery, coastline and whatnot but the cost of living has me concerned. The COL websites I have visited say that it is either a little more or a little less than Modesto, CA where I am now.
