Oh but it’s a dry heat.

Those who don’t live in the desert southwest will throw eyebrows up in astonishment at the heat and how us desert rats can tolerate it. We always give the same answer:  Oh, but it’s a dry heat.

Yesterday my indoor/outdoor weather sensor gave a perfect example of not only how hot, but also how dry – that’s the figure at the top right.

I’ve kinda stopped believing some of the things this sensor tells me – like the date is wrong again, I really don’t think it’s that humid indoors and it’s always* forecasting rain.  Maybe it’s just hopeful. But the temperature was in agreement with the dollar-store thermometer that hangs outside the kitchen window.
