The rain thing is largely a myth but the gray skies in winter thing is true. Cities on the east coast see more rain than Seattle.
There are probably only 15 days per year where having an umbrella would be useful. And the storms that cause it tend to come with wind that renders umbrellas futile. This is why no one in Seattle carries umbrellas even though many people walk to work.
Precipitation most days comes in the form of a drizzle in the middle of the night, and it is not enough to make you wet even if you were in it. It counts as a "rain day" but not in a sense most people understand the concept.
