Humid humid humidity.

Nebraskans don't talk about the weather, they talk about the humidity. Nowhere else in the world is water vapor so revered.

Feel free to use the following dialogue in your English class if you happen to be TEFLing in Sarpy County.

Speaker 1: Muggy today, innit?
Speaker 2: Shore is.
Speaker 1: Ain't that hot out, but shore is humid.
Speaker 2: 's Nebraska for ya. Don't get hot like some places, but it shore gets humid.
Speaker 1: Down in Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas ... gets hotter down that way, but you don't feel it so much.
Speaker 2: Yeop. It's a dry heat.
