I can vouch for that heat and humidity, I just got back from Kansas City,
and it is hot and humid.  Surprised me every day for a week, every time I
went outside.  It's nice to be back in Colorado where it cools down at
night, I could use a little humidity but not quite as much as I experienced
there.  I did have a wonderful time, wish it didn't take 11 hours to drive
there.  I still only have little tiny green tomatoes, and my cousin
harvested a red pepper while I was there.  I'm ready for tomatoes and
peppers too.
