Anybody else hate hot, humid weather?

Post by jamesbond » July 29th, 2010, 11:04 pm

This has been a brutally HOT summer so far here in the midwest. The humidity makes if feel hotter than the air temperature. I couldn't stand this all year round, well I hate winter too with the brutal cold weather and heavy snow. Maybe southern California is the best place to live climate wise in the USA. When it's hot and humid, watching a hot girl eat an ice cream cone tends to cool me off! lol :lol:

I wonder if I could adjust to a hot, humid climate.

I live (& have lived) in Western Canada all my life -- far away from any large body of water, so I don't exactly live in 'hot & humid' central.

Most recently, I've traveled to Panama City, Panama in June 2008. That's a hot & humid place -- particularly for a Canadian.

I like a few key things about that spot, but I wonder if that is one thing I'd never get used to? I guess it'd take a good 6 months living there at least to see how I feel about things.

Winston, have you adjusted to the heat/humidity of the Philippines?

I call humidity Satan's hot breath. I don't know how people in Florida and the south can fricking stand it, because humidity for me ranks right up there with terrorists, pedophiles and American women.

Oddly enough Montana actually has a mild climate in comparison, their summers aren't too hot but their winters aren't too cold either, when it snows it tends to melt quickly depending on your local. Brutal winters are a trait of the great plains like Nebraska/Kansas, where there are no mountains to shield the region from oppressive ice cold winds.

Ahhh, I love the idea of living in a nice cozy, modern log cabin on the mountains with a foreign babe in Montana, where I can hunt rabbits and she will cook them for me. :D

Ok maybe not rabbits, but definitely chicken.

Good question. Winston?

I think for some, areas without clearly defined seasons can lack variety and therefore get tiresome.
In which case, if you're able, travel elsewhere for part of the year.

Excessive heat and/or humidity is awful. It just sucks so much energy. Sometimes it's quite smothering and you can not breath right.

A good number of the world's population lives along that belt and they seem to get by. Maybe become a beach goer under an umbrella all day (assuming you don't work!) with frequent dips or head into the cooler mountains. A/C is not everywhere, expensive to run, and quite artificial.



EDIT (Re: in the Philippines):
I just found the following by Wu in another thread:

- It is very HOT and HUMID year round. Arizona weather is like California compared to the Philippines. You never get a break from the sticky sweat on your skin. The only relief is to go indoors where there is air conditioning. This makes it hard to enjoy being outdoors. This also means that at your home you have to have the air conditioning on all the time, which skyrockets your electricity costs! It's unavoidable.

But you have no choice since it's so damn hot and humid day and not EVERY day of the year! Those who hate humidity will wilt in the atmosphere of the Philippines. In addition, the air also seems thin to some, making it hard to breathe or exercise.
and by Mr S:
Regarding the heat I only thing it's unbearable from April to July, its best from December to March. However everyone will acclimate differently to the weather here and obviously it has more of a tole on you than it does me. I don't have or use AC in my house, just a fan and my body has gotten used to the heat. I would say walking mid-day in the sun for over 20 min will get me hot and sweaty, but generally other times of the day not so much. I think it all depends on one's constitution and over-all health. April to June is the worst part of the year in my opinion and I'll agree the heat and humidity is unbearable at times, especially if you have no AC. However other times of the year the rain helps and this time of the year, February it's actually not that humid compared to other months and isn't that bad. I guess that's why it's considered the high tourist portion of the year.

That's the problem with Asia -- I haven't really heard about an agreeable climate anywhere in the entire region. The Phillipines sound appealing otherwise, but I'm just not going to live in a place where you have to cool the air artificially in order to sleep, every single night of the year. I live in such a place now, but will be moving soon.

Eastern Europe and Russia have the opposite problem -- very severe winters with little sunshine. I spent five winters in Madison, Wisconsin, which was brutal, and I see that mean temperatures are even lower in Kiev and Moscow. To get a somewhat agreeable year-round climate behind the old "Iron Curtain" you'd have to drop down into someplace like Bulgaria or the Balkans. Not a bad option, maybe. Three weeks in Croatia last summer left me super-high on their women. The south of France has a good climate, but teaching English, for one thing, isn't an option in France for non-EU citizens.

By my lights, one of the best climates in the world is in an extremely low cost of living area -- the Ecuadoran Andes, i.e., Quito and Cuenca. The temperature ranges between 45 and 75 every day of the year. It's always spring. Don't suppose anyone knows anything the comeliness of the women there? Ecuador has a large indigenous population, and I can't say the Inca look is particularly appealing to my eye.

Buenos Aires is supposed to have beautiful women and a pretty good year-round climate.

Amen. I live in Georgia and it's brutal. Thank God, only one more month of it.

Not really. I was able to tolerate it at first. But after a while I lost the tolerance. It might be due to bad health lowering my tolerance. See my other thread on this board called "My nasty health problems in the PH".

But I really don't like to sweat or feel humidity around me. Nothing good comes out of it. I can't exercise in humid weather, food spoils faster, insects thrive, etc. Nothing good about humidity.

It's not healthy either, cause it prevents heat from escaping from your body.

Even if you're indoors with aircon, you gotta come out at some point. And aircon costs a lot in the Philippines. My parents' electric bill is about a fourth of mine, even though my place is much smaller.

Some told me that northern Asia, or northern China, has cold dry weather. Asia's a big place. I'm sure it's much colder north.
