We didn't use to have high humidity and this makes sense

Dew point in the low to mid 70s here the last week.  They tell us storms tonight and then some relief. 

Lots of corn and alfalfa in our area.

Ditto for SE Iowa - thick and steamy it is.  Korn is King around here.

Guess they have to justify their position some how so they blame the heat on the corn.  It has always been hot in Iowa in the mid summer months but we didn't have the AC 50 years ago and it didn't bother us.  Handled a lot of hay bales in the heat both on the rack and in the barn.  Just drank a lot of water and took lot of salt tablets.

Here in KS we always had really hot and dry summers. The wind would feel like a furnace blowing, now it is really hot with super high humidity, it's not uncommon to have the humidity in the 90% range all day and the temp is high 90's to 100. 

All the farmers use to grow all wheat and milo, now every field out here is corn and if it's not corn then it's beans. I drove 60mile the other day to go look at a tractor and I felt like I was driving through Iowa, there was always corn on both sides of the road the whole drive and most of it is Irrigated.

The Great Lakes evaporate 820 Billion gal PER DAY. With a B folks.

50 mil seems like a drop in the bucket?

Interesting premise and the corn is closer to the people experiencing the heat (unless you live on the lakes)
And I'm sure it has some bearing, but I remember hot and muggy for most of the last 45.

I guess California should figure out a way to catch that water vapor and put it in their pools so we can stop hearing about water shortages. Then I guess they probably shouldn't sell water to Mexico either, but cash is more important than water didn't everyone know that.

No corn down here, but dew point is 75°. 100° out there and feels like 110° with very little wind! Just kind of bakes you!

My just read that in our local paper a few weeks ago!

 

95* plus 90% humidity is really tough on an old fat man!
