I am from the south...and bitch as we do about the humidity, it serves a purpose. It keeps us from drying out and shriveling up. I have been in Pueblo Colorado this week. Besides being the Federal information pamphlet Mecca, it is the driest place on the planet. Every day has had triple digit temps and single digit humidity. Just look at my damn toes. I'm going to try to go in for a pedicure this weekend. I expect you will see shrieking little Cambodian women fleeing in the streets.
