Cooling off

Only 102 today, down from 117 a few days ago. Muggy though, no point drying off after a shower.

I'm humidity sensitive. Anything over about 40% I have trouble breathing. Life-long asthma...

I am too. I have a pathological hatred for humidity. Comes from growing up in one of the most disgustingly humid cities on the planet. Durban South Africa. With no A/C. I revise my opinion by the way. I must have been suckered by the cool temperature the humidity sucks (for Arizona that is). It mayo be hot up your way but I envy you your climate compared to this hellhole.

Currently 78F and 82% humidity. Low- to mid-90's tomorrow with the same mugginess. Despise it on a personal level but it is good for business.

It was 74 F in southern Oklahoma. Unusual weather for July.

Same here...If it wasn't for my kids, I never would have moved back to this side of the Mississippi. I truly miss the dry climate of the high deserts of UT. Breathing without wheezing was an amazing thing...

It's 12:30am, 75 degrees with 87% humidity. To me, it's pure hell.

I have two dehumidifiers running 24/7 in the basement, and window A/C units in the living room, and two bedrooms.

I'd gladly take the heat over the humidity
