Second, thanks for the explaination Lizz! I was wondering what that was. My first thought was maybe shaved ice/sno cone type thing...but this sounds way better!

This is the one time during the summer that I'm happy to live in an "oven". It may be over 100*, but the humidity is a measly 7%.

Now where I used to live in FAR north Cali...that was some lovely dry heat! Almost no humidity whatsoever. It might be 105 for a month straight, but that was it. Here in Dallas it's like being in a steam room! YUCK! One of my friends from CA came to visit last year and she felt like she could barely breathe 'cause the humidity makes the air feel so heavy. It's a shock if you're not used to it.
We've got upper 90's + thunderstorms today....ick! My hair is a MESS! lol!

I think the South gets it the worst, but I can't lie in L.A. it's hot and sticky like you describe all summer. Our first apartment had no AC and we used to sleep on the balcony with no covers because it was so hot at night...haha
You get used to it and come to embrace it, it's summer!!!

it was a small wedding, maybe 50 or 60 people, VERY small venue and guess what?
the A.C. BROKE just before the wedding started!
It was so freakin hot - we spent 4.5 hours basically sweating like pigs...i had my hair done earlier (blown out straight and curled loosely) - um, yeah that was a waste of money - i had to wear it up .
all the women wear complaining b/c their make up was running, their feet were swollen - it was crazy!!!!
it was cooler outside than inside - i wound up getting so drunk b/c i just kept drinking white wine (don't know why water never seemed like a good idea) and never ate anything - the food was sitting out sweating and looked disgusting!
