Its hot as H.E. double hockey sticks here on Long Island and SUPER muggy. All my open baccy is too moist. I'm more annoyed by that than the oppressive heat and worse than usual plague of "stink bugs", AKA: earwigs we're having.

I hear you!
I'm starting to sense the usual diminished returns on smoke quality as the Summer days progress... No

I live in an area that occasionally suffers from High Humidity as well.

I've found that MM Cobs are great for this - whether the tobacco is too moist, or the air is too humid. While not a cure-all, they do seem to handle the excess moisture better than your average briar.

Give it a try, Mater.

Smokeamater: The heat and humidity on Long Island is not nearly as bad as the budget crisis. Between the high taxes, the high cost of fuel oil and gas, bills from the Long Island Power Authority and the Water Authority, and the traffic congestion not to forget all the red light cameras we have to deal with the only good news is the relaxation from the pipe we smoke. Enjoy your smokes because that's about as good as it gets my friend.

I have actually been considering making this an almost exclusively "corn cob pipe summer". I also intend to load up the 16" clay more often in the evenings.

Yep. Once the heat hits 80+ and there's noticeable humidity, it's time for the cobs. For me, it's the pipes that need to dry out, not the tobacco so much...I have a smallish rotation 9 briars and an increasing rate of tobacco consumption don't really allow for extended drying times that are necessary during high humidity.

So when its hot and humid, it's time for some cobby goodness. Or cigars - always a good pool-side option.

To rub it in to my east coasta brethren Twisted Evil

Sacramento, mid 80's, cooling, expected to be in the upper 70's for several days tongue . It's usually hotter 'n a bitch here all summer (100 plus for about 3 1/2 months straight) so I'm relishing the opportunity to gloat.

Pipeweed fires up on the first match, too tongue

I'm glad you're not gloating too much, PeeDee, I don't even like crossing The Valley between July 4th - Labor Day just to get to the coast. Laughing

I feel for you guys in the oppressive heat and humidity zones. I really do. I'm an ex-cheesehead of about 30 yrs and don't miss that stuff at all!

Here in Pac NW we just cracked 70F for one of the first times this year. Warm and sunny today. No humidity to speak of. But back to 60s and rain tomorrow.....

And I still have my longjohns on!

Neutral



Cheers,

RR

Don't be sorry, Rande, the Pac-Northwest is a great place to escape the hot-n-dry. Coast, rain, and the greenery makes a desert rat pretty darned happy. Even if the locals do think we're mad when we lay in rainstorm on a soggy, composting forest floor among the banana slugs, with a big grin on our faces. Not that I've done that, of course. Cool

Brandon: Thanks for the news. We could use some rain. New Jersey! WTF! When are you coming to Long Island man. I'm waiting to have a smoke with you bro. Drive carefully and don't forget the fucking red light cams. It must be tough getting a 53 footer through on yellow and stopping short is not an option. Ha Ha! Your horses would not appreciate falling on their asses.

BTW I'm out sitting in the lounger you see poolside today enjoying some Engine 99 in a Sav Roma. You should be here too.

Sacramento summer weather sure has been great the last few years. 2007 was horrid. We had 17 days straight of 107-110F+. I told my wife that if I wanted that kind of shit weather, I'd move to AZ. Wink

Well it's 2:44 PM about 1 hour and 40 minutes later and East (about 75 miles from New Jersey) of PB's last post here on Eastern Long Island and to quote Richard Burton and Lana Turner from the old movie great "The Rains of Ranchipur"....."and the rains came". Looking forward to less heat, a watered lawn and shutting down the AC. Screwed up an afternoon swim, but, no complaints from me even though this is the complaint department.

Typical Renoite:

Monday--71F, breezy, mostly sunny: "It's too cold!"

Tuesday--78F, calm, sunny: "It's too hot!"

Wednesday--84, breezy, sunny: "It's too windy!"

Thursday--81, calm, partly cloudy: "It's too gloomy!"

Today--69F, windy, mostly cloudy, chance of rain: "Buckle down, it's January."

Back in January--55F, calm, sunny: "What, is this, June?"

Back last August--110F, calm, very sunny: "What is this, Phoenix?"

December 2010-- -15F, 50mph winds, snow (three feet already on the ground) "What is this, Alaska? Hey, let's go driving around and get in wrecks!"

It's a whole town of complainers. Laughing (Doing my part by complaining about it.)

Sad
Here's a complaint: I just tried phoning Rob for the second time and there was no answer. Hope everything's OK in MO. Let us know how you are doing on the job front brother. If you need a recommendation don't forget I know you for at least 20 years. Best, Marty
