It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity…really?

Thermometer

I’m thinking it’s both the heat and the humidity.  When I walked out the front door at work this evening, the heat slammed into my body, knocking the breath right out of my lungs.  I knew we were under a heat advisory, but I still wasn’t prepared for it.  Now that I’m a little older (and I guess just how much older is relative to where you fall on that whole age scale…if you’re 70, I’m still a young whippersnapper…but if you’re in your twenties, then I’m old enough to be your mother…now there’s a scary thought), I find the terribly high heat combined with a high level of humidity really affects me.  None of this running outside for me on days like today.  When I saw the thermometer on the bank down town had a reading of 102, all I wanted to do was go home to my nice air-conditioned house.   And for the inventor of air conditioning, all I can say is “thank you so much.”

  1. You’re welcome.

  2. Are you serious, you’re the inventor of air conditioning? You’re such a life saver!!

  3. I’m with you, hats off to the a/c inventor–and suppliers!

    • We didn’t even have AC when I was a kid, of course we’d never had it so didn’t know enough to miss it. But I can’t imagine being without it on days like today…

  4. Just browsed around your blog for the first time and feel inspired! I’m struggling with a big weight shift from menopause and having trouble mustering the will to do something about it. I’ll have to check back in here regularly for some motivation. Thanks!
