At Camp, Tim, Tillie and I have a basement apartment. It's built into a hill so it generally stays quasi-cool. However, it also is quite damp.
You can imagine how refreshing that is on a 90* day with wicked amounts of humidity. But, Tim scored a major win when he found a dehumidifier for us. Now, it's about 74* in here and not too humid. If I sit still enough it almost feels like air conditioning. Almost.
