I don’t guess who ever came up with the statement that the heat is unusual because it’s a dry heat, so you don’t mind it so much; was crazy; When you have rapidly changing temperatures in the nineties or upper eighties, it is hot, with or without humidity, and the only fantastic thing about heat without humidity is that it is easier to cool.
The sizable problem with heat without humidity is that if you don’t add humidity to the inside, you end up with a lot of static electricity, & your lungs burn.
My fiance & I l earned this suddenly when both of us moved to Albuquerque, NM. The people I was with and I lived in the south all our lives, but both of us always dealt with high rapidly changing temperatures & high humidity. There wasn’t a day went by when both of us didn’t have torrential downpours in the late day or night! Albuquerque, NM doesn’t have a problem with humidity & there is honestly little rain, in Albuquerque, NM, you experience desert-like conditions. When both of us first moved to Albuquerque, both of us brought our window cooling system units with it. They did not prepare us for the total lack of humidity, & to purchase a beach house that had what our Grandpa called a swamp cooler to cool the house. In order to stay comfortable in our home, both of us had to have an cooling system plan that would add humidity back to the air. It was laughable for our fiance & me when both of us found this out. For years, I had asthma & dust irritations that had a lot to do with the humidity. All I had to do was transport to Albuquerque, NM, & all our health troubles were forgotten.
