Tolerance for humidity is kind of personal. People who were are used to California or other non-humid places seem to always complain about the humidity in Texas, the Midwest(I've lived there also) etc. I have always lived with humidity, except for the two years I lived in California so I guess I'm used to it. It just seems from personal observation that some people just can't seem to get used to it. I have to admit, it can get kind of oppressive....even for me.
