The high temperatures this week have been in the upper 90s, flirting with triple digit, and record-setting. (They're projected to be here a couple more days before dropping back to more normal.) In addition to the heat, the famous St. Louis humidity is sticking around. It only takes a few minutes outside to have sweat dripping from your forehead and your shirt stuck to your sweaty back.
Just how humid is it?
- Last night I watered the plants on the deck. We recently had it sealed, so the water that ran out of the pots pooled on top of the planks instead of soaking in. This morning when I went out to put some things in the compost pile there were still a few puddles of standing water.
- Today when I left the comfortably air conditioned mall at the end of my work day my glasses fogged up.
- I put my mat in the car this morning several hours before I left for a yoga class at the gym. My warrior poses weren't very fierce-looking; I was too busy slipping around on the mat that was damp from humidity.
