Weather in the north and south
« on: August 04, 2011, 05:49:41 PM »
We sold the bay house in Texas and spent the last week packing up 35 years of belongings onto a trailer and a truck.  The temps were in the mid 90s to 100 every day and by 9am each day I was completely soaked.  It got to the point that I just quit wearing a shirt because it would get so heavy with sweat.   We got back to WV today and spent a couple hours unloading the truck.  The temps here in WV were also mid 90s and I hardly broke a sweat.  It's amazing what humidity will do.
We are so sad about selling the house in Texas but we can just not stand the 1300 mile drive anymore.  We are going on a search for a place on the east coast to replace our Texas bay house...that will be hard to do.  We loved that place.  :(

It's been real humid like that the last few weeks, working outside is like going swimming with all your clothes on.

Been hot an humid here too, you can break a sweat when you're not even doing anything!   ::)

Almost makes me appreciate not having a customer right at the moment (NOT)!

When humidity is almost 100 % and it's in the 70's, water pours off me when working. In the north here a dew point temp above 60 F is getting uncomfortably sticky.
Move'n on.
