Winds (of change) are blowing!
I see lots of air moving around us these days! Here in Kansas City, we’ve had incredibly unseasonal weather - in the 70 degree range. These temperature swings arrive on strong warm winds from the southwest, usually in a matter of hours. Here we say, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait a day!”
Speaking of warm winds, we get to witness a lot of hot air of another kind, on the political front this year. Has another political race ever been this raucous and entertaining? (Apparently so – even the founding fathers were well-known scrappers) Either way, I predict that if you don’t like the current political weather, just wait a day, or a few minutes, and you’ll continue to see change.
Wind also changes the environment of your humidor. XIKAR is proud to announce our newest innovation: a humidor fan which automatically circulates the air in your humidor (for 15 seconds every 15 minutes). This helps the overall ambience by overcoming gravity: humid air is heavier than dry, and tends to sit at the bottom of your humidor. It needs circulation which the HumiFan provides. Here’s an additional tip: if you have a shelf / tray in your humidor, keep the cigars away from the sides – this will assist in the air rotation.
