How humid is it where you are?

Asked by Kardamom (28245points) August 14th, 2014

Right now it’s so humid that my bloomers need to put on dry undies.

Run with it folks.

It’s so humid here that I am sweating iced tea, because I’ve drank so many gallons of iced tea.

The best way I can describe the humidity in my area would be to say it’s like walking around wrapped in a warm wet blanket.

Some nights are so humid you can knit a cardigan using the air, or a scarf if you prefer.

I can’t stand humid weather. I am completely unpleasant to be around when I am uncomfortable with the weather. Thankfully, it’s not really humid here right now. There’s a cool breeze blowing through my window.

If I were back home in California, I’m sure it would be a different story.

I am in the midst of a stretch of a few weeks where part or all of the days were pleasantly unhumid. I love it!

Pretty humid. Summer in Florida. Actually, the weather report says it’s just 67% humidity right now. So, this second it isn’t terrible, but if it was the middle of the day, right after a storm, you can see the steam come off the ground sometimes. People pay good money to get steam baths like that LOL. I love it as long as I am not in work clothes. I’m glad we don’t have it all year, but I am fine with the high humidity while it is here for 3–4 months.

@Kardamom Where are you? What’s the percent?

DominicX's avatar

It’s pretty humid. It’s about 55–60% humidity here most days. It’s not my favorite type of weather.

Kardamom's avatar

I’m in Southern California. I just checked and it said 81 %. Plus, when I posted the Q, I had my warm laptop sitting on my tummy and I had just gone into a hot flash, so that made it even worse LOL.

@Kardamom Don’t you have air conditioning?

24% in Northern California, about thirty miles from the ocean and over a set of hills from SF Bay.

A little humid on the cool side, but very comfy.

Funny. I see this question exactly the same time when my family is having water shortage.

Coloma's avatar

9:39 in the warm hills of Northern CA. Temp. 78 degrees, humidity 36%. I feel it, normally we are very dry but thunderheads backing up over the Sierras have the humidity up this week. I don’t know how anyone can live in high humidity zones.

Have you ever walked through the bowels of hell? That’s how humid.

86% here in South Carolina. It’ll get to about 94 degrees today, over 100 with the heat index.

Kardamom's avatar

@JLeslie No, we don’t have any air conditioning. We’ve never really needed it, until these last 2 years. It just stays hot all year long, now.

@Mimishu1995, we are in the middle of a two year drought too.

JLeslie's avatar

@Kardamom Maybe consider getting a small air conditioner so you can cool off a room or two.

Kardamom's avatar

In our housing development, you aren’t allowed to use any kind of air conditioning excepted forced air. You can’t have anything that has to go through a window opening.

My only air conditioning is a fan and a wet towel.

Coloma's avatar

@Kardamom Put a wet wash cloth in the frizzer for about 20 minutes then slap it on your face, sooo refreshing. I do this every morning to unpuff my face. haha

Coloma's avatar

90 degrees and 28% humidity here at the ranch.
After an hour of farmy chores, chickens, geese, ducks, donkeys, horses fed and watered and shuffled around to their day time runs, yards, corrals and stalls I am a sweaty flippin’ mess. lol
Morning rinse and night time scrub away the dust and hay. haha

@Coloma When I’m at work(in a kitchen) and it’s really hot, I fold a towel up so it’s long and thin, soak it in water and then put it in the freezer, after about a half hour I’ll mold it into the shape of a U. In about an hours time it’s frozen solid and fits perfectly over the back of your neck. Works wonders for keepin ya cool.
