    Actually, it's funny you mentioned that because as soon as I hit the submit button, I was thinking how GREAT this summer is compared to the last 10 or so where we barely hit 80 let alone nearing 100. And for several days in a row! Last year it was all about the rain. Considering how far NORTH I am to you, this is very unseasonable. But I still am liking it.

    Believe me, this is a whole lot better than -40F in the winter.

    Wanna come up and camp in the snow then, Uncle David?

    Adventurous does not equal stupid-crazy. Thanks, but I'll pass.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Somehow, I knew you'd say that!

    We're having a very pleasant, sunny day. It's 90F but only 35% humidity.

    Subtract 20 from each of those numbers and I'm on my way over.

    Come on over anyway. 35% humidity is really low for us, it's usually much higher. The dewpoint right now is 59.

    When the humidity climbs over 15% here we consider it sweltering. We're used to single digit humidity.

    What the hell is a dewpoint anyway?

    If we cool air without changing its moisture content, eventually we'll reach a temperature at which the air can no longer hold the moisture it contains. Then water will have to condense out of the air, forming dew or fog. The dewpoint is this critical temperature at which condensation occurs.

    I don't really know anything about it, but my guess is that with single digit humidity the dewpoint is inconsequential.

    Yup, it's too dry there, you're way on the other side of the dry line.
