What the h*ll does that mean anyway? I guess a Northern Boy like me will never get it.
Heres a good example of what that means...
Up here we get 85 degrees that feels like 95 thanks to the humidity.
Down there they get 95 degrees that feels like 85 thanks to the lack of humidity.

But down there you really have to make sure you hydrate yourself often. That low humidity and high temps will suck the water right out of ya. Up here we have to sweat it out.

Hmmm.. still seems weird. Kinda makes sens.
All I know is when I was in Mississippi, it was over a hundred with the [email protected] heat index, and it was HOT!!

Mississippi would be hot AND humid. Probably worse than anything we've ever gotten up here. LOL

This will make u all laugh. Me and my family took a car trip to Florida. We stopped at a gas station when we got to Alabama and I threw up. No really I got sick in the Van and threw up out the sliding door

I wanted to throw up in Alabama too.
J.K, but that is a looooong state.. On the way *=down, of course, it was the last state we went through before entering Mississippi. Took fore freaking, epically considering I had been in a truck for almost 24 hours.
On the way home, it seemed to take FOREVER to get out of that state and get my butt home.

It is true- It is hot, humid and too damned hot to go outside to do anything. Thank God for a/c... I will when I get mine fixed. Now I don't mind going to work so much.
