Humidity... got it. Runs 75%+ all summer. 100% sucks royally, like breathing soup. That's part of the price we pay for living below the Mason-Dixon line. One good thing is that, being in the Tennessee Valley, we are protected from a lot of really bad weather. We get tornadoes on occasion, and a LOT of thunderstorms, but not too bad over all.

Ask any meteorologist where in the USA that has the hardest to predict weather and he will tell you the Tennessee Valley.

In Texas, its not the heat, its the stupidity...er humidity. Rednecks and retards everywhere you go. Out here in colorado though, its nothing but a-holes. At least the rednecks and retards were nice to you.

And funny thing, it was 80+ on tuesday, and its supposed to snow this weekend Wish it didnt cost me 30 bucks to drive to the mountains, still a ton of snow up there.

Hmm. Nice heat wave in england yesterday, followed by a little bit of thunder and rain. Most the time its just a not-to-cold-but-not-to-hot temperature.

Yawn.. i love this countries weather, albeit it does rain, and then rain again, and again, and then suddenly 35 degrees celcius for a week (were the **** did that come from ?) and then rain the next week.

I used to live in wisconsin, right under canada. Rough, long winters. There were days when it hit 20 degrees below 0.....that was horrible.
