The More You Know: Driest and Wettest U.S. States

I have 17 blogs waiting for me to finish and post.  I’m hoping I get to most of them this week.  I keep putting it off to do other things or I’m too tired to work on them.  I’ve been  sitting on my futon and color or mindlessly watch TV when I should be doing other things and thinking of my dry skin.  The fact my lips keep cracking and my skin in insanely dry to the point of never getting rid of these dry patches on my legs since moving to Las Vegas, I decided to look up why this was happening, as I never had this issue when I lived in Los Angeles.   It comes down to the dryness of Nevada (somewhat), but I swear this dryness is creating other skin issues for me.  It’s like the irritation monster was woken up.  I found out Nevada is the driest state in the U.S along with being the second hottest city in the U.S.  Lucky me.  The driest and wettest state information is derived by World Atlas.

The driest states are first.  The ones where your skin feels like a reptile and good luck experiencing a lot of rain.  I’m surprised North Dakota and South Dakota are included in this list.
