ACK…Humidity!

Okay. Finally, today, the humidity has caught up with me. Ewww…sticky! Today we woke up to semi-cloudy skies. By the time I set off for the Wayne area to do some shopping and to meet up with Rick, it was kind of ominous looking. I went into BJ’s (like a Sam’s club) and five minutes later the sky literally opened up! The rain on the roof was astounding, plus thunder! It was typical of a high humidity day. Smudgy, yellowish sky with sporadic rain on and off. When we got home and sat on our deck, my first thought was that I needed to clean my contact lenses because there was a film on them. HELLO! I haven’t worn contacts since Lasik surgery five years ago! Yet, that is exactly what it looked like. It was hazy and almost foggy. Very weird. The dogs drink tons more water than they ever did in Colorado. They pant more. Ice in glasses melts quicker and the glasses bead up and drip with moisture. Coasters under glasses are very much a necessity rather than a convenience. I haven’t encountered this much humidity since I don’t know when. I think it was around 85% and the temperature was around 80 at its highest point today. The locals say “you ain’t seen nothing yet, wait till August.” At least we have the pool to cool off in then! And to all a sticky good-night!
