I've lived in Las Vegas. It's a dry heat. Well, actually with the weather they're getting right now it is just darned hot. But they expect that. I mean, DEATH VALLEY is called that for a reason, and it's just next door.
But now I live in Virginia. Northern Virginia. This morning I rode over to Ashburn (about 10 miles) to meet with a friend. Coming home around noon it was AWFUL. The humidity was off the charts and the air was just ... mucky.
By the time I limped home, I was drained in every way you can imagine. Even after eating some lunch, cooling down, drinking a ton of water, and getting a shower, I was still pretty useless. I managed to cook some dinner because some people around here insist on eating EVERY DAY. But it was chicken and rice and salad so easy-peasy.
Sheesh, it was miserable today!
Tomorrow I'll start and finish early!
I did see a cool license plate though...
