Spokane is also pretty far east of the area where people have to worry about the big earthquake that could hit any second!  Of course, it's already really, really overdue, but it is making some people nervous about Seattle - which probably is just fine with the people who live there!

There has been a lot of press on the pending doom.  Quite something to contemplate.  Another good reason to retire in Spokane.
