I am not familar with that game but I did go to college in New Orleans (Tulane) and stayed through the summers. It just seems like a statement of fact and a warning to stay away during June, July, and August. Have you ever been to New Orleans during the summer? Don’t and just say that you did. I am from another part of the deep south and it really is that freaking hot.
Ok, that probably wasn’t helpful at all. Can you tell us what the card is used for and where it fits into the game?
You were there when the humidity was only 80%. That must have been one of those Sahara fronts moving through. Try 90+% humidity for a more typical day. It is cool because you can actually tread air for a little while until you pass out and fall down from heat exhaustion.
Tell you what, come down here this month and you’ll find out what muggy is all about. 90 degrees with 90% humidity (though for the next couple days it’s not supposed to be that bad, oddly) is hideous. I honestly do not understand how anybody at all survived here before air conditioning. Ick.
I don’t know the game, but the card is right on. I hate August. Oh, how I hate it. Which is why I’m staying inside!
Lived my forst 29 years in New Orleans. You are right on.
Things are especially bad downtown and in the Quarter because of all the asphalt. A block or two walk would leave me dripping in my business-casual work clothes.
That same “cool” front came through here yesterday. Our high today is only 88 degrees! <does a jig>
Before A/C, brick and stone buildings with high ceilings were the norm. Wide windows were also placed to provide some degree of circulation. I lived in an un-air-conditioned dorm on LSU’s campus with these features. It didn’t exactly make the building cool like an A/C unit would, but it was better than nothing. During the day, you could actually hang out in your dorm with the fan on and forget about the heat – though you were definitely still sweating.
Also, IIRC, people ante-A/C were just more tolerant of being sweaty all the time.
