Humidity

Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.  Water vapor is the gaseous state of water and is invisible.  Humidity indicates the likelihood of precipitation.  Higher humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating in cooling the body by reducing the rate of evaporation of moisture from the skin.  This effect is calculated in a heat index table.

Today was hot with high humidity.  The humidity was at about 74% so our 92 degree temperature felt more like 100%.  The air is hard to breath when it is so high.  You can almost plan that there will be rain.  This afternoon we had a down pour.  We were grateful to be in the Barlow working on lessons and business.  We needed to go to the bank but just as we were going to leave it looked like the rain was ready to fall and sure enough less than 5 minutes later it did rain and we would have been drenched.  The funny think about rain in Washington is the smell.  In Utah when it rains there is a fresh clean smell.  In Washington is smells wet and moldy.  However there are days when the humidity is very low and the temperature is in the low 80's and it is so nice you can't believe it.

We had a nice visit with our coordinator.  We had the idea that we needed to call institute presidents for all of our classes.  We wanted to run that by our coordinator.  He liked the idea. He is going to check the handbook and talk to a couple of  Bishops.

  1. I didn't like the smell of the air in Spain either. However, I love the smell of the air in Idaho. I walked out of church tonight and just enjoyed the smell of the air. I love the smell of the fields.
