Re: weather

I have naturally curly hair....very curly.  SO I measure the humidity by 
that.  As a child we had a layover in Charleston S.C. my hair instantly frizzed to 
an afro, it was awful, you couldn't breath, etc.  I have never had anything 
like that here in Houston.  There are some days that my hair does curl a bit 
more than I'd like, but on avg.for most of the year I can keep it manageable, 
which to me means that we're not as humid as one thinks.   I also live on the 
west side which is much less humid than far east Tx. (east Houston through  
Beaumont to Louisianna, etc.)  Also on the beach in Galveston, etc. I notice it 
much more too.  My dh, who is from Florida and goes back often, says it is less 
humid here.  I don't know.

True it is more humid here than the rest of Texas...which is unusually dry, 
but I don't feel it much except in the hottest time of the summer, or right 
after rains.
I guess one gets used to things, and my plants love it, so as long as my hair 
stays okay, I'm fine with it.  LOL

Must be nice to never (or hardly ever) see freezing.
But that humidity y'all have down there - ugh. I was only in Houston
once - many years ago - a business trip for Merrill Lynch in late
October. Thought I was going to croak w/ that humidity. Can't imagine
what it's like in the summer. Think DC and worse all you East Coast
folks. Talk about bad hair days!!
