I’m refraining from using the word moist more than once in this post because it seems to be a word a lot of people have an unreasonable amount of hatred for.
It’s extremely humid here in the peninsula.
All. the. time.
Now I’m a dessert girl. I lived in southeastern Utah for the first 18 years of my life where I experienced blissful dry heat and 90 degree summers every year. Then I moved north and experienced a teensy bit more humidity and a teensy bit more heat and awful snowy, icy, cold winters.
So I understand humidity is not something I’m used to. But I’m sweating all the time. The humidity averages at about 85% and the temperature is usually around 85 degrees. And for the first time in my life, I’m complaining all the time about how hot it is this summer.
I blame you, humidity. And your stupid moistness. Your ability to hold heat in and to make me sweat all day every day. It doesn’t matter if I wear jeans and a t-shirt or shorts and a tank top, I am sweating all day and all night.
Plus it’s monsoon season. It’s rained almost everyday since I arrived. Not brief, sudden rainstorms like I’m used to either. Slow sprinkles that last all day. They’re nice and refreshing, but I miss the sun and blue skies.
Will someone please bring me dry heat?
In the meantime, I’ll wait anxiously for fall.
