The air conditioning in my house has always been a little weak seeing as how it has to contend with a black shingle roof and insulation from 1972. As noted in ALNM yesterday, we’re having a bit of a heat wave here in South Florida with none of the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity, and yesterday the AC struggled to keep the inside temp under 90.
I’ve got a call into the folks who can fix it while I’m home this week, but meanwhile, I’m having a bit of a schvitz-fest.
This is the current weather back home in Miami:
Note the humidity: 92%
Now, here’s the current weather where I am visiting my parents:
Note the humidity here. 54%.
That’s what makes living in Miami a bit of a schvitz-fest in the summer. But in the winter, it’s like Montgomery now. So I’ll take the heat.
