It's so humid........

Baku has been sweltering these past few days, but I have never encountered a situation like today. I walked out of a restaurant and my glasses fogged over the moment I stepped into the humidity. The restaurant didn't seem exceptionally cold, so I assume it must have been the high humidity.

A colleague glanced at his watch and noticed it had fogged over in the humidity.

I thought I had experienced the ultimate humidity having spent 20 years in Washington, DC, the home of humidity. Today's fogging occurred about 9pm -- when the humidity normally begins to ease up a bit.

It reminds me of the time, years ago, when I was on a DC bus on a sweltering summer day. The AC wasn't working and the bus was packed. There was a large elderly woman sitting near where I was standing -- suddenly she said to everyone and no-one: "it's so hot, my corns are poppin'!" For a second, everyone forgot about the heat.
