Using a humidifier in the desert

In my entire life, I never thought I would use a humidifier

The longest time I thought I wanted to move out to the desert. I had grown up in the north where it was cold for 6 to 7 months out of the year. One of the last Winters I dealt with in that area, we had several extreme blizzards and one of my family members ended up dying after getting caught outside. I wanted to escape what seemed like a horrible frigid wasteland. As a kid you get excited going out in the snow and playing for an hour or two at a time before your parents call you back in. You don’t think about what it’s like living out there where you have to do work outside and you have no choice but to stay in the elements. Your face gets frostbitten and icicles form on your facial hair. The last year I was living in the winter, I made a pact with myself that I would get out of that area within the next 3 years. Luckily for me, it only took 3 months. However, moving to the desert wasn’t necessarily the most ideal place to go after being in an area that was so extremely cold throughout the year. I literally went from one extreme to another. And while I was used to the winter seasons being fairly dry up north, I’m not used to having dry temperatures all year long. I had to go out and buy a humidifier for my house because the humidity level was so incredibly low. In my entire life, I never thought I would use a humidifier. I’ve always been deathly afraid of mold and moisture is one of the quickest ways to get it. But since the humidity is so low to begin with, you can safely use a humidifier in this climate.
