I realized that it wasn’t so hot the last week, but it was the humidity that was making it think outrageously warm.
Today, it is going to be the same temperature as the day before.
The windows are open plus the breeze is blowing through the house, while I am on the verge of shivering. The difference is that there is such low humidity outside, that the air itself feels cooler. Both of us have been able to turn off the air conditioner for the first time in weeks. Without the a/c, everything was getting a musty think plus odor. Both of us had a wet, sticky think to all of the countertops. All of our clothing plus bed linens felt damp. I had to do some work upstairs to prepare the spare room for guests, plus I was covered in sweat within hours. I had the a/c on high while in the room, wondering if our guests were going to be able to sleep here. With the change in humidity, the people I was with and I were able to turn the a/c off. If I had known that the air was going to change so seriously overnight, I entirely would have waited plus done the upstairs work on the day our guests were going to arrive. I wouldn’t have needed the a/c plus simply opening a window would have made a big difference; I can only hope this weather holds up for the entire weekend. On Friday, the people I was with and I are taking the kids to the zoo, plus I am not wanting to be out in the sun if the humidity is going to be entirely high.
