San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 7, 2004.

Temperature: 77 Fahrenheit.
Humidity: 66%.

Sixty-six percent.

It explains why my flesh is melting and dripping off the edges of my chair.

that's nothing. try 85 degrees farenheit with 90% humidity in smelly, polluted NYC...god awful...makes a NYC winter not seem so horrible.

but my sympathies for the random CA weather, totally unacceptable.

I've been so completely shown up I don't even have a snappy response. Or a wilty response, for that matter. 85/90 is horrible. Why do so many people live there?

i don't know...i guess NYC has a few redeeming qualities to make up for the weather, go figure :)

you are totally allowed to complain - that is not acceptable CA weather, i would be complaining too...but right now that weather sounds like a paid vacation for us new yorkers.

I'm picturing a mass exodus of sweaty New Yorkers to the West Coast, and it's scary.

When I was a kid in LA I always wondered why people back East saw California as such a temperate paradise, since it was so godawfully hot. I wasn't counting on humidity, but it makes a lot more sense now that I am. I'll take 95 with 30% humidity over 85 with 90% any day.

I was going to play the Massachusetts card, but it seems the NYC card has already been dealt and played. I fold.

But ha! I will play the Misery card!

Oh, wait. I meant Missouri...

...or did I?

you all still lose, cause we have the hot smelly garbage, the hot heavy smog, and the hasidic jews who refuse to wear deodorant....its such a happy place here in the summer.
