Top 10

It's a show on The Weather Channel that ranks cities by windiest/most humid, etc. So far New Orleans is the wettest and the 2nd most humid. Anyone watch and made the ranks?

I remember being in NOLA. God, it's hot down there. I'm surprised that NOLA beat out Seattle for being the wettest.

Certainly not here . . . this year.

Most of the cities are in the southeast--moisture comes off the Gulf of Mexico.

Yeah, everyone watches the road from behind their air vent it's so hot. They must think I am insane when I ride by in pants.

Though it's called the Windy City, Chicago is nowhere near the top of the windy cities, if I recall correctly.

"Windy City" was a term coined by a NYC journalist back in 1892 to describe Chicago's bluster in attempting and winning the 1892 World's Fair.

Dallas is pretty damned windy, and this year feels more like Houston when it
comes to humidity, Florida got nuthin on us.
