You would like the summers here in San Antonio! 90+ degree temps are common, but few days where humidity almost match the temp., but it's still much better than what you've been exposed to.

They're murder. It gets so ungodly hot here during the eight month Summer that you wish you could go to the Arctic region to cool off. It's so incredibly hot here during the Summer that you can't really do anything outdoors because of the strong possibility of heatstroke.

Not sure if any have posted, but don't trust the opinion of folks who were only in SA during the summer of 2009. Last summer was exceptionally hot, with over 50 days that the temperature exceeded 100 degrees. The previous record number of days was around 30. In the 7 summers I've lived here, there were 1 or 2 where the temp never broke 100.

Typical summer highs and lows here are 95 and 75. The temp usually gets to 95 for 1 or 2 hours, roughly around quitting time if you work a 9-5 or 8-4 shift.

Is a long, hot summer and the humidity makes you feel that the temps are way above 100F ...
So by the end of September you are just very tired of it, regardless if the temps were above or under 100F

Gee, so all the hiking, biking and offroading (in an open Jeep) we do isn't "anything outdoors?!?"

Seriously, prepare by using sunscreen, wearing a hat and drinking plenty of liquids, and you can do a lot during the summer!

Honestly, I would rather put up with the heat then the bone-chilling cold! As a matter of fact, our weather these past few weeks has only solidified my love for the beautiful long hot summers we have here!

About the worse summer we had was 2007, when it rained all the time. That sucked, as it was the first summer I had the Jeep and the last thing I wanted to do was have the top and doors on it all the time.

Like Bowie said, last summer was unusually hot. But overall, my feeling about Texas summers is- if you can't beat the heat, join it. Meaning, be in the cool indoors with the A/C, or if you must be out- do it in the pool, lake, beach. If you plan on doing any jogging, gardening, walking the pets- just do that in the early hours or evening hours and you'll be ok.

Of course you can do things outside! I hate the heat as much as anyone, but this is someone from Miami! There is no way this person won't adjust to the heat differences here.

And I rode a bike up to 180 miles/week in the heat last summer. Just have to be acclimated to it.
