    Believe me, there's nothing dry about good old Toronto air - we are almost tropical in the humidity department. But you're right - the outer air content isn't too relevant since no data is stored outside.

    We have seasons here - summer and February.

    Many snowbirds come here every winter since it is 70F today.

    Right, but in the winter the colder the climate the drier the air. Low humidity levels in data centers leads to damaging static electricity.
