I have been amazed at the weird difference in the climate here. Going from 80% humidity too 12% is really strange. Wearing long sleeves and sweatpants in Late May without sweating is also strange. I kind of like it. The four-footed ones seem to like it as well.
For example, it’s 86 degrees outside right now, but I have the windows open and it is 75 degrees in the house. That’s thanks to the swamp cooler as they call it here. Apparently it works well until the humidity reaches 20% or so. I’ll keep tabs on it and see just when it gets to the point that I have to close the windows during the day.
It doesn’t seem like the babies have needed more water. The only difference for me is I have been using more sunblock. Since I can deal with that and all of the babies seem happy (considering they all got yanked from home and had to spend a ridiculous amount of time boarded, mostly because I was scared), we are a little worse for the wear but surviving.
