Really at a loss: Considering jobs,cost of living,renting home or apartment with a pet. I am certified in Law Enforcement and Corrections,but I need to test for a job which can take up to month or more to acquire a position. Considering all this what do you think? In my research WA,OR pay more but also cost more to live and seem to have the most jobs. OR has no sales tax but has income tax and WA is vise a versa. So sell me on your state if you can? Thanx.Thanx in advance.jim(also consider the nasty hot humid summer I have in this miserable state of Florida). I like snow but not tons!

I won't try to sell you on my state or any other, because much of the choice is subjective. But, if you can define what you are looking for in a new home town, then Sperling'sModerator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed might be of real help to you. It along with City Data are the two best places I have found for the important facts and comparison's. Even relative comfort; i.e. the affect humidity has on comfort.

Best wishes in your search.

Comparing humidity in GA and FL depends heavily on location. Florida remains humid throughout the summer with insignificant variation; the same is true of Georgia's Coastal Plain. However, the Piedmont (North of Columbus, Macon, Augusta) is significantly less humid. I'm posting a link to a map of annual dewpoint temperatures which give you the most accurate depiction of humidity. Also, here are the average August dewpoint temperatures for select GA and FL cities; for the reference, above 70 is generally considered oppressive. As for snowfall, GA Piedmont cities average a few inches per year; snow in Central GA is much more sketchy and any wintry precip in South GA and FL is extremely rare. The second link is a map of average annual snowfall.

Atlanta, GA: 67
Orlando, FL: 73
Miami, FL: 74
Savannah, GA: 71
Athens, GA: 68
Jacksonville, FL: 72

I hope this helps you!

I'm not sure about FL summers, but GA summer can be absolutely brutal. Last summer was unbelievably hot and humid.

This past Summer, to me, wasn't that bad, and I'm in Savannah!

From what I've heard, the heat and humidity was actually worse in Atlanta than it was in Savannah this past summer. Maybe Savannah had some sort of ocean breeze or something. Anyway, it was by far the most humid summer I've ever experienced in Georgia. I think Atlanta had something like 80 days of 90+ degree weather, which is 2nd all time I believe only behind the infamous hot summer of 1980.

Here's a nice summary of the weather in 2010 for the state:

Climate Summary for 2010

Atlanta had 85 days 90 degrees F or higher, but Columbus had 108 and Macon had 104:

Just How Hot was this Summer?

Atlanta had 85 days of 90 degrees or higher ? That is ridiculous. In a typical summer, Atlanta has maybe 40 days of 90 or higher. I hope next summer is a little cooler.

Last summer (2010) was the hottest summer on record since they began in the mid 1800's. Also, Atlanta set an all time record for days over 90....thankfully last summer was an anomaly!
