NYgal1542: I was curious, so I checked out that thread for your posts, and I did not see anything you wrote that I found to be objectionable. You were just expressing an opinion which, of course, is your right.

I don't know what it is about today, but I am seeing, in my opinion, quite a bit more "touchiness" than usual in many of the posts today, and I would like to know why some days are like this -- why some days seem to bring out more nastiness in people, generally speaking. I have also noticed this in other ways as well. For example, some days, we will walk our dog in the local park, and almost every person we encounter will be friendly, but on other days, same time and weather conditions, most people we see look as though they are mad at the world!

You are lucky to have such a beautiful cool place to go to so close by.

Default Ugh. It's the humidity!

I feel like a wet rag that was left outside in the pouring rain for 3 days and needs to be tossed in the garbage. My head feels like mush. My joints ache. I am trying to stay awake but it's hard. Last year was not this bad. Today it is sunny but it doesn't matter. I have to stay inside in the AC. Even the dog feels droopy.

It's the monsoon. I read that since the ocean is getting warmer, it makes the air over it warmer as well. Warm air can hold more water vapor = higher humidity. Here in the Four Corners I live about 20 miles from the AZ border and recent summers have left me feeling exhausted. When I complain about the humidity, out-of-staters laugh at me and tell me how awful it is back East. This may be so, but it's something that we never had to put up with in southern Colorado until recently. I suspect Arizona residents are also more used to that nice dry Western air.

The temperature where I live is currently 89 degrees - feels like 100 degrees at least. You and your dog have my deepest sympathies (my dog hates the humidity as well).

Here it's 102 with 42% humidity. It "cools" to the 70's at night. Heat with 5% humidity is somewhat tolerable, but this...ugh. And I moved here from Arkansas, it seems worse here this summer. IF it would rain, real all day rain, and actually cool off, that would be nice.


Come on October!

I looked up your dew point on weather.com - it was 60% and that is high.

It’s 8:15 p.m. with a dewpont of 76. It’s 86 degrees with a feel like of 96 right now. This is FL though, not AZ, it’s expected.

I was wiped out after being in the pool with the grandkids for an hour this afternoon. It didn’t even faze them, they had been out on and in Sarasota bay for summer camp all morning already. They are FL kids though, if it’s below 70 degrees with low humidity, they are cold!

Our dew point here has been in the 70s for over a week and just today went to 53%. I'm sure we matched yours a couple times - hard to believe but true. Land of extremes.
