    At the moment it's 10% relative humidity, and tomorrow they expect it to be 4%-6%. While not often this dry it tends to be dry here until the monsoons in July. But then it will be the heat.

    Made me think about all the covers I've seen with someone sitting outside on their porch, playing and having a grand time. Maybe I need to move somewhere more hospitable.

    Suggestions?

    I've visited Chicago in the winter. Is that where the phrase "witches ***" came from?

    Atlanta makes a great home base. The traffic sucks, but we make up for it with Righteous Guitars.

    Lack of humidity is never an issue in the southeast!

    I'm 3 block from Fisherman's Wharf SF, I can almost see Alcatraz from my apartment.
    Fog and salt air are the only enemy here, but guitarists play the streets for tourists all the time.
    (I've had to do so myself a few times:rolleyes: needed quarters for laundry.:p)

    Both of my sons live in S.F. One is renting a room a block and a half from the Haight/Ashbury intersection. If I lived there I wouldn't be able to afford a PRS, but it is beautiful .... those boys are my retirement plan!

    On a nice summers day you can see the coast of France where I live.
    Sometimes I'll sit on the top of the cliff on a nice morning with an acoustic
    and scare a few Seagulls!!!

    More than likely! Especially if you put them in a brass bra!

    Chicago cold?:rolleyes: Sorry, but I'm in St. Paul, MN. Where -20F isn't that uncommon during winter. And that's still not cold compared to some places around the Midwest.

    Today will be in the mid 70's. Might not be playing outside, but will definitely be out on my bicycle. Then again, there is a morning acoustic jam that may end up outside. Depends on how much it warms up in the next hour or two.

    No, no. You just have to prepare for it. We got 10cm (4 inches) of snow yesterday - drifted to my knees on the front walk....but I've got clothes for it.
