A note about humidity. Yes, in Florida it is quite humid. But I have never really understood exactly what that means or how it truly affects my life until coming to Japan. In Florida, I can escape from the heat and do the majority of everyday. However, here, I am forced to cope with it.

Humidity is the percentage of how much my body will sweat in one day. If I walk outside and start sweating then, regardless of heat, it is a very humid day. If I walk outside and my skin is still dry after a half hour, regardless of how cool the weather seems to be, it is not a very humid day.

That is humidity.
