If you check out this link you will see Vancouver has less annual rain than New York does...and much less than Miami...and when it does rain here it usually is pretty light and not an all day affair...usually over-night and mornings.
It's actually become pretty decent on a year round basis for weather...pretty temperate...never to hot...never to cold.
People say the same things about Portland, OR and Seattle. It's not true at all. Probably just people from a place where it doesn't rain much are sensitive to the rain. By no means does it rain all
the time in those areas. I've never been to Vancouver, but my guess is that it is somewhat similar.
