Midwest heat


Living in the Midwest comes with its pros and cons.

Growing up, I lived up North, and I didn’t really know what it was like to live anywhere else except in the North Eastern area of the U.S. All my family lived close by, and we rarely traveled because of the busyness of life. For me, summers meant 75 degree days, and cool nights. When I got married and moved to the Midwest, it took a lot of adjusting for me to get used to the new climate and season changes. One of the scariest but coolest parts about living in the Midwest are the thunderstorms. Growing up, I loved to sit and 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, and often times they get so bad that they scare me. During late spring and throughout the entire summer, we 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, and you just feel damp all the time. It totally grosses me out. My husband recently bought me a dehumidifier. It has made my life so much easier. I love it! The only downside is that it is rather small. It does wonders in the room that you place it in, but not really any further than that. I usually put the dehumidifier in our bedroom a few hours before we go to bed so that our room is not sticky and stuffy when we are trying to fall asleep. During the day, I move it to whichever room I am spending the majority of my time in. I am so thankful for the dehumidifier, and I hope we can purchase some more of them soon so that I don’t have to move them from room to room each day.
