It's raining here in Michigan, the humidity in my house has risen and the hair on all my bow's weren't any looser hanging on the backside of the horse they came from.

I loosen the adj. screw and the hair falls to the opposite side of the bow.

A perfect example of why it's good practice to loosen the bow when retiring it to the case after playing. Keeps the hair from being stressed too much.exactly

At least they're only covered in rosin now!

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!
