Midwest heat


Living in the Midwest comes with its pros plus cons. Growing up, I lived up North, plus I didn’t legitimately know what it was like to live anywhere else except in the North Eastern part of the U.S, all my family lived close by, plus my friend and I rarely traveled because of the busyness of life. For me, summers meant 70 degree afternoons, plus cool evenings. When I got married plus moved to the Midwest, it took a lot of increasing for me to get used to the new temperature plus season swings. One of the scariest however coolest parts about living in the Midwest are the thunderstorms. Growing up, I enjoyed to kneel plus watch a Summer thunderstorm pass by. However, it did not prepare me for the kind of thunderstorms that come where I live now. They are violent, plus often times they get so exhausting that they startle me, but during late Spring plus throughout the entire summer, my friend and I get lots of storms. With the storms comes lots of humidity. It is the kind of thick humidity, where the sweat never seems to dry off of your skin, plus you just feel damp all the time. It totally grosses me out. My hubby recently bought me a dehumidifier. It has made my life so much easier. I love it! The only drawback is that it is rather small. It does wonders in the room that you place it in, however not legitimately any further than that. I usually put the dehumidifier in our family room a few hours before my friend and I go to bed so that our room is not sticky plus stuffy when my friend and I are trying to fall asleep. During the afternoon, I transport it to whichever room I am spending the majority of my time in. I am so thankful for the dehumidifier, plus I hope my friend and I can purchase some more of them soon so that I don’t have to transport them from room to room each afternoon.
