Why did we leave there?

What we had left behind after moving from Los Alamos New Mexico to Oklahoma. Was the absolute driest, cleanest, freshest air on the planet. Almost intoxicating. Something like drinking pure sweet well water. Ah-h-h. So refreshing.

Plus I had not perspired much in the three and a half years we lived in Los Alamos and saved hundreds of dollars worth of deodorant. Northern New Mexico humidity is the lowest in the United States. Clean dry fresh air.

So now the trade off having moved to Oklahoma is the exposure to the most humid air in America. Requiring many dry hankies in your pockets if not a beach towel. This summer here in Soonerland has been especially hot and sweaty. It’s almost as bad as when we visited Tampa Bay a few summers ago with temperatures in the nineties and humidity the same or more. Absolutely the wrong time of the year to visit Florida. So, never mind a big towel after exposure to Okie sweat. It would be easier to dry off in the shower. Maybe I’ll just hold a running garden hose over my head instead. Whew!
