I have to tell you first and foremost that humidity sucks. Despite the fact that you can get used to it, and some people love the heat, it sucks. Yeah, hanging out on the beach or in the park makes it suck less, but the air sticks to you like a leach that hangs around for the better part of three months. Once we finally feel some respite in the month of September the damned humidity decides to peak his head out for a few more days just to piss you off before the beautiful Autumn in the city. Going to work becomes a true pain in the ass during the summer, as the daily grind of taking the subway leaves me a sopping mess by the time I arrive at my destination. Isn't that nice, not only do we have balmy weather outside, but the city in all their infinite wisdom decide to do nothing about the temperature below ground, so we end up with dead air in the subway station that is about 15-20 degrees warmer than it is outside with about 110% humidity. So now as Fall approaches, I welcome it with open arms, and even smile at the idea of an early winter.
