The monsoons are here and yesterday, we actually got rain. Lots of rain.
It was wonderful. Yes, I went outside in it. Yes, I splashed in a few puddles.
And yes, I grumbled about the humidity when it was over.
I’m sure most of you now that in Arizona, we have dry heat. 110F is warm, 115F is hot. Both are manageable with enough sense, water, and sweat. And since I have plenty of all three, I do just fine.
However, sweating does no good in humidity. Frankly, I’m pretty sure my body is on the verge of a shutdown. How does one keep cool in humidity. Stay inside where it’s air conditioned. Except, I have to drive around, get out of my vehicle and take samples in the humidity. So, it doesn’t exactly work.
And then there’s exercising. Same routine on a dry day is less effort than on a humid day. There are only two benefits to humidity. First, it isn’t as cold when you get out of the pool but that’s not really much of a benefit.
Second: Rain. Lots of rain.
Here’s hoping for a really wet summer.
Until next time.
