Personally, humidity for me is a good thing. I grew up in Louisiana and as a native, I have invisible gills behind my ears that help me breath. Others less fortunate sometimes have a hard time adjusting to the humidity. It's a killer for some. After living in the dry West for 15+ years I missed the humidity. Each time I go to N.O. to visit family the air just embrases me, no matter how hot. I love it. It gets much hotter out West. One thing I never really liked though was how the humidity keeps things hot at night too. It's hard to sleep! But moisture means life, and there's plenty of that down there!

Just another spin.

It wasn't the weather that drove me away, but the senseless crime, poverty and the lure of the West and its Mountains. I'd never move back there though. I never felt like I fit in down there, even being a native. There's many good things to be said for Southern culture, but it's just not me.

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A RELATIVE HUMIDITY ABOVE 100 PERCENT BASED ON THE ABOVE DEFINITION! 110%!!!! WHERE DID YOU GET THAT? PLEASE, IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER DON'T JUST MAKE IT UP! This applies to everything, not just the weather. People who are considering moving here may take a lot away from this forum and they need ACCURATE information..... not just people making stuff up who don't even live here!

AMEN! I never thought I'd miss heat and humidity until I visited the Netherlands for four weeks one summer. One day they took me to an enclosed pool where it was warm and humid and I was just so thrilled to feel like I was back home. Some days it's like walking in warm apple pie filling here and I have to remind myself that there's nothing like it There's no place like home.

Heavy humidity would be hard on me, although I might get used to it in due time. I don't mind light humidity. I was raised in dry heat, which I still like; however, I really think it's harder on the skin than humid heat. Seems to burn hotter.

Crayfish (and SouthernBelle) were technically correct. It is apparently possible for humidity to exceed 100%. The scientific explanation is here, with the appropriate citation: USATODAY.com

All I know is that I lived in LA for 54 yrs, and 38 of that in N.O. I used to hear the TV weather people give the humidity as 110% several times per year, when it was really hot and muggy.

Maybe this was a mild summer, but I just dont get what all the hype is about? I find the humidity and the weather entirely bearable.... as long as I stayed hydrated..(and this is coming from someone who was jumping horses over fences in direct sunlight at noon during some of NOLA's hottest summer days...)
This weather now actually feels a little cold to me... Last night had almost no humidity, and it felt almost strange....
So, my first summer down here, and I have absolutely no complaint...

Well, there is something a little different about your system that thrives well in humidity, and I think you are fortunate, because you are more comfortable year-round than most people.

And I can relate from the dry end of the spectrum. Growing up in central Calif, as a kid I relished the heat, played in it, slept like a baby in it, and sometimes even wore sleeves in the middle of summer. My whole family was always fascinated by that. While I don't do 100+ degrees so well anymore, I still handle hot weather a helluva lot better than most Oregonians (where I live now), still like to be out in the sun a lot, and I still sleep like a baby on warm nights/hot days. And I hate air-conditioners. I don't turn mine on until it's almost 100, and sitting in the shade is usually all the coolant I need. I've no idea why I'm this way but it's very weird.

Default take a deep breath

I live in covington-just across the lake from new orleans- I think you need to take a deep breath and ask yourself specifically what you are looking for? It doesn't seem like new orleans would be a great fit unless I'm missing something.
