"What the heck, Mark?!" 

Hold on...this is weather-related, in a nerdy-science way.

I had some of these salted almonds in a bowl yesterday. I ate them and left the bowl on my camper counter. All that remained in the bowl were a few bits of almond skin -- and grains of salt.

This morning I observed droplets of liquid, presumably water, on the bottom of the bowl. Salt was gone.

Yep, the weather -- nearly-100% humidity and warm here in southern Georgia overnight, made a big driving force for the slightly-negative O of the H2O in the air to get intimate with the positive Na of the NaCl in the bowl -- and their buddy opposites to do the same. The very-salty droplets continued to attract more water from the air -- a big party! ...because that's the way water is.

 

Science is cool!  :cool:

While science is cool, humidity in the SouthEast is not.

 

However, I do envy your swamp explorations this time of year, especially, the abundance of waterfowl/

California has its issues but trade our weather for the humidity of the South? No thanks! Of all the people I know who've talked about leaving only one actually pulled the trigger.

Winter finally arrived here with the first significant snowfall. We received 6" of heavy wet snow overnight. A little over an hour of cleanup, Lil' Red burned diesel, Julie burned oat meal, and most the work is done. Snow bombs are releasing from the trees and it continues to snow lightly.

 

and from the current Weather Service forecast discussion -

 

Ensembles and clusters indicate another relatively cold
trough will dig south from the Gulf of Alaska into NorCal Saturday
and Sunday with more widespread Valley rain and mountain snow
and even lower snow levels than the current system down to
2,500-3,500 feet. Hazardous mountain travel is again likely with
this system with preliminary snow amounts from 10-16 inches above
5,000 feet. With this system from I-80 through south of Hwy. 50,
probabilities for 12 inches or more are 60-80% and 30-60% chance
to see 18 inches or more. The current path of the system looks to
keep impacts for the Valley at a minimum with only 0.10-0.25"
expected through the Valley Saturday and Sunday.
