    A couple old guys were watching us work, so they came over and had us sit with them in the shade and they told us stories about NOLA and their history in the area. I didn't taste any alcohol in the tea, but it was the best sweet tea I have ever had.

    Ain't been to the desert in the summer yet, have ya Spanks? That **** will roast you in a way you've never felt - shade or not. It certainly is a different sensation than the humidity of the east, but it will cook you none the less - roasting vs. braising.
     
  4. Depends on what PART of NC you're in in summer...they're not any trouble at all here in Greensboro, at least not when compared the the hell-on-earth that is August in either Baton Rouge or Orlando, my two previous homes.

    As much as I don't like humid heat, I REALLY hate humid cold. The winters in New Orleans are BRUTAL. Even though the temperatures aren't that low, the cold just seeps into your bones and makes you want to die. No thank you. I'm out.
     
  6. Yeah.

    Used to go fishing at the Rigolets (the narrow passageway between Lake Pontchatrain and Lake Bourgne) in the middle of winter (good for fishing, the cold chases all the big fish inshore), nothing like being on the water at 5 am in the dark, a 35 mph wind blowing in off Lake Bourgne, the air temperature about 30, and the humidity pushing 90%.......

    ...BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Up here in NC, last year we had a snow storm (well...such as you get in this area, about 6"), the temperature was probably about 20F, and I walked around outside in jeans and a t-shirt, was completely comfortable.

  8. I went from living in El Paso to Panama.

    Getting off the plane and suddenly just being wet. Had a hard time breathing with all the humidity in the air.

    Anyone here ever experience summer in Toronto? It's like walking around in a warm bath... you feel like a friggin arm pit for a few months out of the year. Uncool.
     
  10. ...trust us on this, if you haven't experienced what summer in a place like Houston, New Orleans, or Orlando is like, you haven't a CLUE about humid heat...

    Been to Florida a couple of times as a kid in the Summer, and it was pretty disgusting as well... I have something of an idea in that respect.

    Smog here sucks too.

    ...didn't do SQUAT during Katrina, the house I grew up in had 6' of water in it...

    :meh:
