It was one of those humid days
when the atmosphere gets confused.
Sitting on the porch, you could feel it:
the air wishing it was water.

  2. When I moved to SC in 1996, I met my new neighbor at the fence. It was late August and very hot & humid. He asked me if I knew the difference between Columbia and Hell? I did not, but he enlightened me. “There’s no screen doors in hell” True that.

  7. I am not a fan of High heat or humidity…August seems to be less humid than July.for me ..are forecast is: Fire danger is already extreme and is getting worse with high temperatures soaring into the upper 90s and low 100s today and tomorrow and relative humidity dropping to the teens. – so thankful for the firefighters – reinforcement Fire crews are on there way from New Jersey, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. (I can’t imagine dealing with the humidity in the Southern and Eastern USA) …
