Ditto Ditto It's Really Summer Morning Coffee Muses

Ditto Ditto It’s Really Summer Morning Coffee Muses

This one’s for you Nigel… The temperature is 84°, humidity is 89%, heat index is a mildly obscene 99°. Just for the sake of my British brother-in-law we’ll call it unpleasantly warm and a moisturizing treatment for your skin.

Last year I discovered when we toured Carlsbad Caverns, that humidity is the bane to my existence. The caverns are a constant 57° but the humidity is a constant 90+%. You would think that the temperature difference from the outside 109° would been heaven, but within minutes the workout of hauling my body up and down stairs and sloped trails had me starting to sweat… And once started it never dries. The air is saturated, it can’t take up any moisture, there is no way to wick the body’s 96° working temperature away.

Maybe that’s the attraction of desert climates to some people. I just can’t get past the hundred degree daily bake…

Looking at the weather map, I see that the cool front did what most do this time of year and pulled up short on it’s way to the coast.

It’s getting late and I have to go fix brunch…
