Been there when? You certainly can't compare the humidity in those states to Mn's in the summertime.

Minnesota's winters may be a valid complaint if one doesn't like snow or cold.

But the --heat and humidity---in Minnesota's summers?

C'mon now.

I would think that complaint was sarcasm but I didn't see---"sarc"----typed at the end of that post.

Humidity. Ugh.

Frankly, I think Minnesota is too humid. How people live in Florida is beyond me!

But 97F and humid beats a January day when the high temperature is -12F any day!

And besides, MN and Chicago's humidity is punctuated by nice, cool, dry spells, like we're currently experiencing.
True. It's funny how people say the humidity is worse this year. I thought it was better. But this August it has gotten cooler, and there have been several breezy days in June and July.

Actually, I prefer a bitter cold day over a humid scorcher. I survive the best when its dry and 58.7 degrees.

I'll take the humidity because, while very unpleasant, it isn't actually painful. Plus, the bitter cold means a whole host of other unpleasant factors abound (associated with winter in general).

But I'm much happier in a dry climate than a humid one!
