Living in Northern California, I do not pretend to know much about humidity. Having lived in San Diego where humidity can be a factor in late summer, I was more than pleasantly surprised when I realized Nor Cal has low humidity as a rule. My curly hair frizzes when exposed to humidity, so it loves the drier air.
I visited my cousins who live in East Texas, and it seemed no matter what time of year we were there, it was HUMID. The kind of humidity, that when you take a shower and dry off, 60 seconds later you are drenched again!
This photo, submitted for Jennifer Nicole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge: humid, shows the broken cloud pattern indicative of monsoon moisture that made its way up the coast from Mexico. No rain (which we desperately need), but clouds, humidity and only slightly cooler temperatures than a normal, hot summer day.
I will take my heat dry, please. How do you like your heat? Hot and dry, or hot and muggy?
