I been reading about flying (to be a 'proper' virtual pilot since I
can't afford to do it for real).  This reading includes aviation
weather, although I knew this fact back in high school. :)

Moist air is actually less dense than dry air - water vapor is lighter
than air.  So when it's dry, engines run better than when it's humid.

Ok, I'm done spouting my newfound (or renewed) knowledge, back to pods
and shower caps!
