windows covered in condensation

This post is for the folks back home in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. of A. who are used to seeing condensation on their windows when the weather outside is frightfully cold and they have their furnace or heating stove going full blast. The warm, moist air inside their home hits the window that borders on the cold outdoor temperature and ta-da you have condensation.

Here it is just the reverse. The condensation pictured above is on the outside of the windows of the building’s second story. We live in a desert surrounded by sand, but we are also on a coastline surrounded by water, very warm water. So, once that hot, wet air hits the window bordering the cold internal airconditioning, ta-da you have condensation.
