    Now you know why all of those old houses in the South have 12 foot ceilings, tall windows and are always drafty.

    They used to permit it when a sprinkler attachment was used on fire plug. We often had someone on the block with a wrench and just went all out atleast untill the police or fire truck showed up to shut off.

    We have had steady 90 to 94 everyday since late may here, humidity is so bad that when you walk outside you become soaked in sweat without doing anything and it makes the air so thick it's hard to breathe. Our A.C. runs 24hrs a day and it keeps the house about 80° from noon until 9pm, August will have us near 96, 97 everyday and thankfully September will see.a break in the humidity to around 70% and temps dropping to low 90s. I love living on the swamp near the Gulf in SW Florida.

    Well, now, the rest of the country knows what it's like in south Texas 3 months out of the year.

    We're actually supposed to get a "cold front" in a couple of days. I think I'll stop by Walmart Sunday and inquire about snow shoes.

    Went out for a ride on the motorcycle with my wife today. At 9000', it was beautiful. At 5500', it was 104. It was hot. We stopped at a gas station for us, not the bike, and pushed home. Frogg Toggs chilly towel - marvelous invention. Here in Santa Fe it was 97 as we got home, and after 104 that felt great! It's a couple of hours later now, and it's 86 with 17% humidity.

    I've done the high humidity life. No thanks. Unliveable. If you ask me, people who lived in hot, humid areas before there was AC were nuts. I'd have headed for Alaska after one summer.

    Well, I honestly didn't know any better. I can remember getting on my bicycle and riding down the street just to get some air flow. The attic fan drew air over the bed at night and the sheets were soaked in the morning from the humidity. But, we somehow made it. Now days, the thought of no AC is beyond comprehension.

    A sharp one.

    Serrated will do if you don't have anything else but it gets to be a chore sawing off a big enough piece to be worth the effore.

    I hate the hot humid weather, when I get out of the A/C my glasses for up.

    And that's pretty much every time you go outside around here from May to mid to late September.

    Weather is so unpredictable nowadays. I can't stand this inconsistency. I even want to order some demi-season clothing for summer. Hopefully, there are good salesmen in this zip code area. I don't want to get used to this weather :c
