Top 10 Signs It’s Humid

Top 10 Signs It’s Humid

by Gina Valley

People whine about our traffic and sky-high real estate prices, but most everyone loves our weather in Los Angeles.

And, during the summer, although the mercury does often rise, it’s a dry heat.

Most of the time.

This week is not most of the time.

It took me a couple days to realize what the problem was.  As I began to analyze all of the data our disturbed SoCal universe was sending out, there was no denying it.

Humidity had hit LA.

Here’s some of what clued me in:

#10.  I have to chew the air when I take a deep breath.

#9.  When I ask Siri what the weather is she just laughs and laughs.

#8.  Our fish are swimming around outside of their aquarium

#7.  I washed my hair yesterday, and it still hasn’t dried

#6.  There’s a splashing sound when the wind blows.

#5.  Our dogs have learned how to turn on the ceiling fan.

#3.  Laundry starts to mildew before the wash cycle is even finished.

#2.  The desert tortoise that lives in our backyard keeps coming in the house, and lying on the air conditioning vent.

#1.  It’s taking all of my self-control (and a lot of lowfat ice cream) to keep me from stabbing people who comment “It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity,” with a fork.

It’s ok to serve popsicles for dinner 3 nights in a row, as long as they’re different colors each night, right?

Laugh Out Loud!

Is it hot where you are? How do you stay cool when the heat and humidity hit? Shoot me a comment. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

    Boy you people in California do complain about everything don’t you?! Try living in a climate that is 100 degrees with 75% humidity all summer followed by 30 inches of snow all winter.

      And,tornadoes!!! You guys have tornadoes, don’t you?

      But, you’re so much more weather-tough than we are. You guys can take it. We in SoCal just have not had the experience to learn how to deal with this nasty weather. Of course, you’re welcome to come visit while we are having great weather, and you are buried in snow!

    Thank you for the chuckle. The humidity has been crazy the last few days in Texas.
