Just came back from a two week vacation from LA and San Diego. I finally realized what low humidity is like compared to Virginia's 90 to 100% humidity. I understand what people are talking about. For example when you step outside from an a/c environment in VA when it's 95degrees and 99% humidity you can break a sweat to your car....and when the wind blows it blows hot air. Things were different in Southern California. Don't get me wrong, 95 degrees was definitely hot and if you're in direct sunlight it's pretty daggone war, but if you're in the shade...it feels great and if you feel a breeze it's nice cool air. the evenings are very very nice and cool vs. VA evenings that can be sticky and muggy. So YES I finally know what people are talking about when they say, "...but it's a dry heat". Big differece.
