Heat constricts blood vessels, reducing the flow of oxygen.I used to be able to handle this heat but not anymore. I go outside to do some yard work or other stuff and have to get back in the AC after a short time. Not sure how other old timers make it down in Florida. Maybe some can get used to it. I can't.
So I just post more on 5af.
Yup. Honestly, I would rather have a 90 degree day with a 60 degree dew vs. an 80 degree day with a 75 degree dew, which is what we have this morning. Just brutal.a high of only 79 today
a friggin Christmas miracle
but a dew point of 71* (!!!!!)
god damn it
We did pick up 1.13" of rain since yesterday with the line of storms last night. Much needed.
I have a super-duper 70-pint dehumidifier in my basement that is rated to cover a larger square footage than my house. In summer I usually keep the windows shut even when it's hotter inside than out because I find I mind the humidity more than the temperature. Something like 78 degrees and 50% humidity is often more comfortable to me than 70 degrees and 80% humidity. I only open the windows if the humidity is below 50%, which is my setting on the dehumidifier.
