"But it's a dry heat..."
Yeah. That's what people told us when we were looking at moving to this lovely Southern California desert. "It gets REALLY HOT, but it's a dry heat, so it's not so bad...". They obviously haven't ever been here during the Monsoons. Yeah. We get humidity starting in July and going through September. So, not only is it 110 degrees outside, it's sticky, nasty, horridly humid. If you step outside, it's like being instantly wrapped in saran wrap. All of your clothing adheres to your skin and it's not a pretty site. Not at all.
Last night we had a pretty crazy thunderstorm with tornado warnings just up the valley. TORNADO WARNINGS! I live in Southern California. I live with the constant thought of "I wonder if there will be an earthquake/out of control wild fire today?" And now I get to add TORNADO to my list of natural disaster possibilities.
Ah... it's good to be a Californian.
