My thoughts on humidity.

Friday, June 11, 2010

I experienced my first humid day in Chicago yesterday. We were going to head to the Blackhawks parade until we turned on the news and saw this --

Just a little too crowded for me. There were cops on ATVs crashing in to people.

I ended up spending the day in K's air conditioned apartment. It was too hot to suggest walking around, and with the madness of that parade, there was no way we were going to go downtown.

The moisture in the air didn't really bother me, and since I do the Brazilian straightening treatment my hair looked pretty good. It was the heat that killed me. I complain if it's above 80. Not a fan of heat under any circumstances. I think the humidity makes it warmer. I don't know. It's hot and I don't like it. It is currently 86 but feels like 92. Grossssss. Too hot for me.

But I still love Chicago. Even though it will be 79 degrees at 10:00 tonight.

We are heading out for sushi soon and tomorrow I will see the new apartment with my friend Crystal, and then spend the day {and night} with her. We are going to go out on the town with my friends tomorrow night. Can't wait!

I also have some fun things planned for Saturday. It's going to be a great weekend.

Sooooooo not ready to leave on Monday. Sad.


  1. Girl, come to Florida and then we'll talk humidity!!!!!! HA!

  2. Yes, I hears there were nearly 2 million people... CRAZY!

    Growing up in Chicago, I was super nervous the first time I visited CA, but I'd take the 100+ dry heat over Chicago humidity any day!

  3. Yes, the humidity makes it feel much MUCH warmer.

  4. Ew, I'm with you- humidity sucks. Even now I'm a little cringey thinking about it. In Ireland we have no humidity, and it never gets really hot. But whenever I visit the USA during the summer I try to stick to well airconditioned areas!

  5. chicago is fantastic! i love it there:)
