  1. LOL! I mean, how awful.

    i often confuse lol and how awful – especially when the how awful does not apply to me πŸ˜€

  2. That is awful. We had similar humidity today, but much lower temperatures. I turned on the air (sorry) because I couldn’t take sweating while standing still anymore. I’m a spoiled american, what can I say.

    Will the humidity drop soon, or is that pretty much where it will be for a while? Sending cool, dry thoughts your way.

    it looks like it will takes a dip into the high 80’s in february. the nice thing is, any breeze is cooling!

  3. WAIT A MINUTE!!! Did you say it would drop to 80% in February??? We will be there in January. I’ll have to think about how to prepare for that. Well, it was 84% in April – that wasn’t the end of the world. We will pray for some rain and breeze in January. Love, Mom

    no, i didn’t say it would drop to 80% – i said it would dip onto the 80%. the average is 88%. that’s the average daily high humidity. it will be great. jan and feb of this year were lovely!

  4. Ugh. That is just icky, muggy, hot, sticky and yucky. No air conditioning?

    we have aircon in the bedrooms, but we try not to use it. it’s expensive and at night it really does get comfortable enough to sleep.

  5. I’ll have my husband read this the next time he feels like dropping the temp on the thermostat. Maybe this will give him some perspective. πŸ™‚

    at the very least he could say a little prayer for me as he lowers it!

  6. oh that sounds really sticky, I lived on the east coast one summer and really made me appreciate dry heat.

    moving from the mountains to here – culture shock’s got nothin’ on moisture shock!

  7. Wow. You made me feel grateful that I live in the west where we mostly have “dry heat”!

    Hang in there! Fall is coming!

    if only. no fall here, just less hot season. but i can always look at pictures and dream!! πŸ˜‰

  8. Ick, I hate high humidity days!

    We’re in the Northeastern US, and it’s starting to get very nice here. Cool nights, low humidity. I love the fall air.

    Hope you get some relief soon. Great ‘ku.

    the nights here are fairly pleasant now, too. cool enough for a blanket. it’s just the days that drive you insane! πŸ™‚

  9. Yikes! I definitely don’t miss that…..although, I only lived in FL, which is bad enough…..

    I’ll take my mountains any day :o)

    florida can get sticky enough! i can say i’m glad to no longer have the cracked fingers and runny noses!!

  10. Ugh… that’s hot and uncomfortable!!!

    Have you acclimated at all? My friend from Vietnam now here in Arizona where it is very dry has humidifiers in every room and has had a tough time dealing with the lack of humidity!!

    i spent five years trying to acclimate to the dry weather and high altitude of colorado. i’d gotten pretty good, but still suffered nose bleeds and cracked fingers. and while i am relieved to be rid of those, the whole sweating from nothing more laborious than blinking my eyes thing, that’s getting a little old!

  11. oy. that’s hot but thailand — how exciting! your web site is so clean and pretty – mine is jealous.

    i know, i never in my wildest dreams would have thought i’d be living in thailand!! 6 years ago colorado was exotic!! πŸ™‚

  12. I understand completely. Indiana summers can be just like that. No fun, no fun. At least the nights are cool. I’m really looking forward to fall. Though hubby swears he’d love to live somewhere eternally warm, I think he’d reconsider knowing there was no fall just around the corner.
    Hang in there! You’ll be able to rub it in everyone’s faces when we’re digging ourselves out of the feet of snow and ice – WISHING for the warmth.

    don’t you know i’ll be all, hey suckas, i’m wearing shorts and flip flops while you’re shovelin’ snow!! yeah bay-bee!!

  13. Great haiku! I love Thailand–visited there once–but hate humidity. It must be really hard since you came there from CO.

    we were in co for 5 years. i grew up in dallas – which isn’t the same humidity wise as thailand, but at least it provided some basis for what humidity was. πŸ˜‰

  14. the tropics indeed. πŸ™‚ although here, it’s been fairly sunny, with the occasional storm…

    my husband just returned from the philippines this morning.

  15. Sweatin’ right there with you! August is so miserable here too. At least fall is right around the corner (hopefully sooner rather than later).

    fall, i’ll be dreaming of fall!
