  • Humid. Because the dry air kills my sinus'.

  • Arid because the humid weather makes it seem so much hotter in the summer and colder in the winter(wet cold compared to a dry cold)

  • Well, I was in Panama in July (their winter) and the humidity was AWFUL! I swear to you, I was sweating in the shower! They don't even use hot water there (which I found pretty gross for washing dishes!)

  • I rather live in the cold. Ha.

    Get yourself an electric blanket and call it a day.
    Though I can only use one on the couch since I have a waterbed.

  • I have lived in both too. Humid heat makes me sweet like crazy. The dry heat seems cooler, like it might be 90 out, but it does not feel 90.
    I like the dry heat better.
    But I will take either. I would rather live in the south then the north.
    I have lived in Hawaii, Texas, Oklahoma,and Yuma Arizonia.

  • Arid, definitely. I don't mind dry heat as much, but humidity just makes it feel so much hotter. Not to mention the sticky feeling right when you walk out the door. And my hair frizzes something awful.

  • Humid air is 10000% times worse than arid air. I live in Texas and it gets so humid that you feel like you're going to suffocate, like you're breathing water! Yuck! Arid air feels less hot than it really is. Its true. Much more pleasant.
