Where? 85% humidity is no fun, except that the breeze makes your sweat eveporate faster. At 8 this morning I was sweating just standing outside.

As a someone who grew up in SE Texas (Beaumont/Pt.Arthur area), I feel your pain deep in the recesses of my memory (when I was in high school football August 2-a-day practices at 95 deg with said humidity were a lot of "fun").

As someone who now lives on the West Coast in Eugene, Oregon where today it will be sunny and 75 deg F, I can only look forward to my ride. Say howdy to TX for me and save me a slice of the thick air.

My neice lived in Corpus for several years, and I've lived in the Houston area for 30 of my 43 years. Corpus definitely has wind! So the heat index is often not what it is in Houston. Glad you're enjoying it.
