To Humidify or Not to Humidify

As I was going around the house today refilling all of our humidifers, I thought,

What a strange place the upper midwest is. We spend our summers removing too much water from the air with de-himidifiers. Then in the winter we desperately try to put water into the air with humidfiers.

And Rowan's got a nasty chest cold and I've got stopped up sinuses, so I've added Vicks Vapor Steam to all of the humidifiers and wow, the smell of Vicks wafts through every room today.

That is an interesting thought. I always wondered why my mom got a humidifyer when I was young. I guess we lucky northern Californians have it good with regard to humidity. We keep a pretty even keel here year round.

I love that smell!

But it is crazy that we've got excess humidity at times... and not enough at other times.

So true!!! Then again, I run Brendan's humidifier all year long figuring I never know when he might have croup.

I hope you both feel better soon!!!!!!!!!!!
