A Note to My East Coast & Southern Posse

(Alternate title:  Why SSG Can't Come to Visit This Summer.)

SSG:  Ohmahgah it's so humid!
Work BFF:  Dude.
SSG:  DUDE, it's SWELTERING out here!
Work BFF:  The humidity is like 40%.
SSG:  What is it normally?  Like 15?
Work BFF:  I don't know.
SSG:  I'm SO Googling that when we get inside.  And I can guarantee you it's HIGH today.  Like record setting high.

(A few minutes later SSG is staring at her computer screen and reading through Wikepedia.)

SSG:  DUDE the humidity is 61% right now!!!  Normal comfort level is 30% - 60%!  It's OVER THE STANDARD LEVEL OF COMFORT.
Work BFF:  By ONE degree!
SSG:  I can FEEL IT.
SSG:  Ohmahgah!  Did you know OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON is the most humid place in the country?  That's like RIGHT UP THE ROAD.  No wonder I'm DYING.
WB:  IT'S NOT HUMID.
SSG:  Dying!  Over!  Here!
WB:  Dude.  Look at the temperature.
SSG:  73 degrees?  
WB:  YES!
SSG:  What does that have to do with anything?  Why are you laughing? Wait where are you going?!

You are so funny. When I lived out in Colorado my friends would complain when the humidity hit like 20%. Are you kidding me? It was amazing how quickly I forgot what it felt like too. When I returned to VA for my first summer after the long absence it hit me like a brick wall.

Mid 90's and humid here again today. Ick!

It's been warm but not humid the last couple of days. I fear that changes today. But there are so many good things about the south in the summertime. I swear. give me a minute...

You are hilarious :) I hate the humidity. Especially when it causes the temperature to go from 85 degrees to 185 degrees. And in VA, it does that. A LOT!

Ha...it is 10 am, already 80 degrees and the relative humidy is already 67%.

The late fall and early spring are gorgeous here though and humidity free.

I completely understand, but not because of the discomfort. No, I hate it more because of what it does to my hair. I'm self-centered like that.

That's why I spend the summer floating in the pool;)

Okay, the humidity this week was ridiculous. I'm glad it just went ahead and rained already. I can't handle my hair frizzing while I'm indoors.
