So our humidity has been lower this week. Right now it's only 60% with temp at 80.

I know it won't last - but wow - so much nicer for working outside!
60% is crazy high, we have that today and I'm dying!
Luckily the temp isn't very high so I'll prolly survive.

I get the gator-aid in the US, but do they have Croc-aid in Australia?

Anchorage -25F back in the early 90's. Very dry. You could not really sense cold until your skin became numb.

Cleveland a couple years later, -15 with some humidity and you were shivering in seconds.

We broke 50* today. Not sure if that's a record or not.
Snow showers for tonight and tomorrow.

At the beginning of summer a couple of years ago, the pastor at our church said, "this is the time of year when some folks start heading north for the summer. They call them 'snowbirds'...I call them cowards!"

Reminds me of the college football players using the term "opt out" right now.

They aren't "opting out".....they are just plain "quitting".

Apologies for the slight thread drift.....
