This year the theme for the weather was, in fact, humidity. However, 
it's not usually that consistently humid-- some years it's been 
suffocatingly dry, some years it's been incredibly rainy, but mostly the 
trademark of Pennsic weather is that no three days in a row are 
generally alike. The fact that the humidity/heat didn't drop at night to 
chilly levels until the last day was unusual. Apparently there was a 
major pressure system sitting on the PA/WV border that just didn't move 
for about a week, causing the humidity/rain combination.
