    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.
