Gah

I know it's not actually possible to die of high humidity, but man it sure feels like it.

Yes it is. It's called "drowning."

Humidity is content of water vapor (i.e. gaseous water) in the air. Drowning is liquid water in the lungs, except for a very few rare cases of "dry drowning" (like, the throat closes shut to prevent water from getting in, but that also prevents any air from getting in either).

As soon as humidity gets high enough, it turns from gaseous water to liquid water and that is no longer humidity, that's rain. ;)

1. Did a garage sale.
2. We had a canopy THANK G8D because otherwise we would have truly died. At least we had shade and sometimes there was a breeze.
3. I was wilting by noon and went home. Got a cold shower. Went back out to do the actual usual Saturday chores (groceries, library, post office).
4. Back home and now need another cold shower. But OTOH I don't have to go out again tomorrow AT ALL so that's a big help.

I was NOT a fan of the 80% humidity in Puerto Vallarta. That was just gross. At the moment, it's 30% and my mug of iced coffee is dripping with condensation, which then threatens to drip off the coaster.

I did a garage sale this morning, at least there was a canopy to help keep the sun off, but it was still 95+ degrees and the heat index was 110. I'm downing a lot of liquids (avoiding sugary stuff) and eating salt to keep up when I have to go outside, but ugh, I'm on my 3rd shirt and 2nd shower of the day.

Yuck.

I have to bring a towel with me now when I work out, as my neck is just dripping afterwards. My whole body feels sweaty too. Yesterday I finally tried the pool, and it felt like a bathtub as predicted.

Today I had to take 2 cold showers and change clothes... I think 4 times. And I didn't go outside nearly as much. OTOH, I didn't go outside nearly as much!
