For years, my husband had been complaining about the cold winters and hot humid summers.
I was talking to a friend who had recently moved to Evansville, IL.
She told me the weather was absolutely beautiful there and told me she moved to Evansville, IL for the weather. She didn’t tell me that was why she had moved, but I should have known. She and her husband both had rheumatoid arthritis. The slightest change in the barometer would cause so much pain, that they could barely move. They still need the traditional HVAC system, but instead of it being cold and dry, they say the humidity is perfect. During the summer, there is little rain, and they sometimes have a humidifier running, but not often. They prefer the dry heat of IL. I talked to my husband and told him what Margie told me about the weather in Evansville, IL. I thought a move would do us good since he could no longer handle the heat, humidity, rain and snow that we had in our area. He said he was too old to shovel snow, and tired of staying inside because the rain made him hurt. It took me almost two months before he even considered moving to IL. One afternoon, he was wrapped up in a blanket as he laid in his recliner. He couldn’t get his arm comfortable, and his legs ached. He asked how much rain and snow they got in Evansville, IL. I told him they have an average of 310 days of sunshine. He wanted me to get brochures on their weather, and the best places to live and eat in IL.
