Now? It's gorgeous today. Humidity is 37% at the moment.ensign_lee wrote: ↑Thu May 06, 2021 2:22 pm Yes, but for the opposite reasons. I'm down in Houston, and wow I can't even go outside now because when it's high 80s with near 90% humidity it feels awful. And it's only going to get worse from here as TX goes through Summer.
GF doesn't want to move though....even though we could afford it.
I've found that the best way to get through the bad parts is to take relatively frequent breaks from the city (to the extent you can). Even Galveston bay can be reasonably pleasant outside if you are in the shade and have a sea breeze. We always plan a weeklong trip somewhere cooler near the end of July or beginning of August, when the heat is typically at its worst.
I have to admit I used to be more down about Houston weather until I lived in Washington D.C. and New York city. The heat isn't as consistent in those places, but it can be just as bad if not worse when it comes on. The New York City subway can be a special kind of hell when it's 100* outside and 120* inside the station while you wait for a train. Plus, New York doesn't have the ubiquitous a/c we have here. Also, I loved Colorado weather when I lived there, but having to commute in the snow is no fun.
