I live in Canada and have never been to the American south. Despite the reputation we have for cold weather, it actually gets brutally humid in the summer where I live, which sets off my asthma and forces me to hide in the air conditioned house much of the time. We are thinking of renting a cottage down there this summer, but I am concerned about the humidity. I understand that NC is generally very humid, but my hope is that on the ocean the breeze may cut the humidity and make it manageable. Is that just wishful thinking on my part?
