Yes, that is really what we need to do.

Yeah, I saw the one at 6:53. Not really night to me. All I'm trying to say is that we don't have it as bad as that user from Arizona.

I agree. This morning is delightful. I sat outside in the shade and enjoyed listening to the sounds of the peaceful doves. This was at 9 a.m. and it was only 80 degrees. It's still too humid though to turn off my A/C. Darn, I hate those high electric bills.
Lol, oh well my friends in Killeen live on post so they have no electric bill. They run it as much as they want.

Yes, you're right, I'm sure about Houston. Maybe the temps are lower at night, but I would assume the humidity is higher.[/quote]
Yes, but to me, humid saltwater heat is much better than dry heat, for two reasons: Humidity is good for your skin, you don't have to hydrate as much, and while it can be a nightmare for hair, it's more comfortable than that baking, itchy, tiring heat in the rest of Texas.

I'm sorry if I called you rude when you weren't trying to be. Sometimes it's hard to tell just reading the words and not actually hearing them how they should be taken. I'm also sorry for going on about the heat in Houston and running it into the ground. I look forward to the day I can say I am moving and you'll never hear from me again.

Wow! If I had my electric paid by someone else, I'd turn it down to 65 degrees.

Well, I prefer dry heat to humidity even though humid is better for one's skin. As far as hydration goes, I drink soooo much water all year long anyway, so that doesn't matter for me.

Enjoy your stay in Killeen.

Hey, you said it, not me!
But I think anyone who chooses to live in Phoenix or Fargo is clinically insane, so I have a lot of people on my list.

Cool nights? In summer? When that water is 87 degrees? Yeah, I can just imagine those refreshing gulf breezes during hurricane season, bringing saturated 80+ degree air into Houston to "cool off the nights." Sounds VEEERRRRYYY pleasant.

Lol, I mean usually. It can indeed warm up at night, but not hardly as much most of the time. Atleast not to me.

Dear The Harvester....When you copied my quote, you left off the last part of the sentence which totally changes the meaning of what I said. The following is what you put:

If it takes sanity to agree that Houston's weather is horrible for months, I believe there must be a lot of insane people living there...

Ah, no, that's not quite what I said which I only brought up because of what you wrote in the box above. Below is what I actually said.


"If it takes sanity to agree that Houston's weather is horrible for months, I believe there must be a lot of insane people living there as too many say it's just fine and dandy."

I don't think any of them are insane; I was commenting on your post about being sane for this and that reason and therefore, I answered as I did.

I think we've established that some like it hot and some do not. Case closed.
