It aint the heat it's the humidity

Post  Mike R on July 18th 2013, 7:29 pm

I don't know if it's me or what but I don't remember it being this miserable. My ass is officially kicked, four days of heat with high humidity with today being the worst. It was 95 with dew points in the 70's, down right tropical. It wasn't as bad if there was a breeze but I work in a corner and the only moving air is from my fan, it was a 3 t shirt 4 Gatorade day. I must be getting old Laughing LaughingLaughing

97 here today. I cleared brush and sawed wood from 7am to 10:30am. Drank about a gallon of water.

Yep ... last year around here it got near 100 a lot of times but, the humidity and dew points were on the low side for summer. Even though it is NOT as high a temperature now ... it feels a lot worse than that did.

I spray painted an engine block with engine paint which is normally fast drying yesterday morning around 10 o'clock AM. At 7 PM it was still tacky. It rains at least once every day now for almost three weeks. Send all this rain to Nebraska ... they need it.

Oh I feel your pain, it is fricking miserable here as well. I swear it is even worse than last summer with all the humidity! I only got to take one local delivery of cabinets today and was stuck in the warehouse most of the day with very little air movement. My boss was real decent about staying cool and taking it easy though.

Being at Firebird in Arizona for 3 days in 110 plus degree heat didn't feel this bad ... you just had to keep hydrated.

It does feel horrid, and worse than the Carribean coast and I spent considerable time there the last three years. It is 98* about everyday there, but still does not compare.

dry heat is more tolerable, but those dry 114 plus days we had the last 2 summers were just as bad imo.

Typical day here in South Louisiana. That fan doesn't do any good blowing in hot air unless there is another one blowing out the 'other' hot air...
