Weekend Vocabulary

sultry:  hot and humid. Which is today in Seattle. By which I mean it's not very hot, and not very humid, but unlike places where it actually gets hot and humid, there isn't much in the way of air conditioning. And so we here must suffer in our homes with the sultry weather, and cannot sleep, and all of that. So all of you in the South, where you have AC in homes and cars and work and shopping and everywhere else, do please stop pointing out how much hotter it is down there. It's like mentioning the Sun's surface is hot: you are not present in that temperature gradient either.
