I'll gladly take the 85F .. that's pretty much perfect :)
But 100% humidity :o .eek. LOL .. gotta keep that down to under 20%

-----------
Also every day of winter that passes is a day closer to thunderstorm season! And I love a good storm. We just don't get enough of them here..

Iíve been to Colorado (Colorado Springs) a few years back for a week, I about turned into a raisin it was so dry. Iím not used to humidity being so low I was drinking water constantly just trying to not get dehydrated. It is a beautiful place though I wouldnít mind coming back to visit instead of work. Iíll just make sure to take my gallon water jug with me next time lol.

Here in GA I donít think the humidity drops below 50% very often, though I imagine places in FL can handily top that.

Yep I've heard that if you're not used to the lack of humidity here, it has an effect on you like that!
Sometimes we'll even get single-digit humidity values - basically pure desert-like days in the summer. .lol.

I just don't like winter. If I had the money, I'd travel the world to find summer wherever it happened to be at the time  :D

Fortunately, we don't get much at all here, being right on the coast. Go inland a few miles and they get it, though. But not nearly as much as years ago.

I HATE SNOW..!!!


Did I mention I hate snow..? It always, but ALWAYS, finds its way down the back of my neck, however many layers of clothing I put on. And I ALWAYS slip over at least once on icy ground  >:(

You can head here to Southern California! Right now, it's in the mid 70s. By next Saturday, it'll be around the high 70s low 80s.

Forecast is saying we have a slight chance of snow here next Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday.
Guess we'll see if any of the little systems that provide those chances amount to much...

I remember Georgia winters, I'll take 22įand snowing over 36į and raining any day ! The dry winter days were nice , the wet winter days SUCKED ! :D

It's humid where I live most of the time and that humidity makes it feel colder than the actual temperature, and makes it feel damp and chilly inside the house. We have a lot of cold, rainy days where it's as cold as it can possibly be without any freezing precipitation. I agree, I'd take a colder temperature and a pretty snow over a warmer temperature and a cold rain any day!

After living up in New York last year, South Carolina sometimes feels just as cold for different reasons. NY had lower air temperatures and SC has higher humidity and more rain that exaggerates the air temperature. It's been windy this winter too. All the cold rain and constant wind reminds me of what it's like in Scotland and England during the winter. I've heard places like St. Andrews (home of the world's most famous golf courses) gets a lot of wind and rain, but not too much snow.

I can't take high humidity, which is why places like Florida are a no-go for me. Heat is ok if it's dry, I've been in Arizona in 100į+ heat with no problems, but if I'm soaking wet as well, no thanks..!

We finally got a little dusting of snow yesterday morning  :D The weather forecast called for all rain and 40 as a high, so I was shocked when I saw big, wet snowflakes falling outside.   It snowed for about an hour, and a little bit stuck. Hereís my windshield before I drove off yesterday. Snow in my region is notoriously difficult to forecast.
