What is GOING ON With This Weather?!

August 24, 2010


I live in Upstate New York. We have winter for 6 months of the year. Summers can be humid sometimes, but this year just takes the cake. Holy cow!!! What is going on with this crazy weather?!

You wanna know how humid it is here? I’m sitting at my desk, it’s 73 degrees and rising. I’m having a little problem breathing, because, well gee, I have lungs and not gills. I go to look out my window blinds and see this:


Oh my gosh– that’s WATER on my window blinds! My blinds are sweating!!!

OK that is just totally freaky!

All our fabrics here are damp. You have any idea how ikky it is to sit on the bed, and the sheets and pillowcases are sticky with moisture? It’s pretty gross. It’s even worse when I realize that my kitchen and laundry room are entirely gutted… and I have hang all clothing out on the clothesline. But it won’t dry! As a matter of fact, the clothes become ever wetter after hanging out on the line!


Give me snow. Give me blizzards. I love winter, I love snow. I can breathe again then.

And did you hear that fruits in California may not ripen because it’s been so cold over there?

    I was just recently in OR/CA and on the coast… it was COLD. We’re talking 50s and 60s. We had to wear pants and fleeces… BUT… we went inland to the valley and it was HOT. 100’s. That was in the central, not southern part of the state. I actually like humid weather, when I am in it long enough to get acclimated again. I always felt healthy in high humidity… breathing, energy, good skin etc. But you have to be used to it. Poor blinds šŸ™

    Yep, down here in SoCal, we are definitely having a cooler than normal summer! Finally this week, it’s gotten hotter, more like normal late August temps – pushing 100.

    I actually prefer a bit of humidity to totally dry heat, but what you have going on is ridiculous!
