Last year's drought aside, not all of Texas is "dry."

I live in Houston, which is notorious for its humidity. Much of the Texas Gulf Coast and many other regions in Texas have medium to high humidity.

I think most places in Texas are dryer than most places in Massachusetts. Texas is a B-I-G state, and certainly not ALL parts of it are dry desert. But I've been to Houston and the Gulf Coast, and it's more like a sandy climate than a damp climate. Mass. is a relatively small state, and on the weekends residents flock to the parts that are less humid---Cape Cod and the western end of the state. But I still stand by "hot dry Texas and cold damp Massachusetts." (Is that what I said?)

Another BIG difference is the alkalinity of the water; click the link and check out this map!
This is a difference I can feel when I wash my hair or my face!

Thanks for your comments.
