AAAAAAh, sweating while walking from my front door to the mail box. One of the things I love/hate most about living in Houston in the summer. Dew points are rising back into the upper 60's today and for the weekend and that means its going to start feeling 'sticky' each afternoon. More moisture in the atmosphere makes it more difficult for your body to cool itself... so it feels hotter than the 90 degrees out there. Yuck! But, the moisture also helps our skin stay 'younger' looking compared to those who live in the desert 'dry' heat of Phoenix or Tuscon. I have family out there and man, their skin looks like dried out saddle leather compared to ours here in Houston. Sweat has its benefits!
