The only thing I hate about winter is the dryness. My hands feel like rough cardboard. My legs and arms are dry and scratchy. At times, my fingers and heels split open and bleed. The worst was when I was in Minnesota - I tried not to make any facial expressions since it would rip the skin on my forehead and bleed. I kept taking a steam bath every hour or so throughout the night just so I could move and not rip any more skin.
So I've seriously considered getting a humidier and bring my room up to 55% relative humidity. My only concern is whether or not that will damage all of my electronics, DVDs, etc. Anyone use a humidifier before?
