Is it always this hot and dry here? Is this a 'normal' year? Are their more thunderstorms on average?

OMG. Last year at this time we got rain every day for about an hour, then the sun came out again..perfect.
This year, my water bill will probably be as high as my electric bill. I cannot believe that my AC is cranking at maximum crankage day after day already, as if it were August.

So, the ocean breezes are not a factor this summer?

No, usually it's this hot,,,, and muggy, not dry! The highest heat index has been only about 108 (I think) One day last year, I think it was 120.

I remember that when I first started coming to this forum, someone was planning to retire here. He was warned that it got HOT here. He said that he was used to the southern heat as he was then living in Virginia. I'll bet that I wasn't the only one that hooted at that!!

Savannah has weather that is simply too hot and humid, much like the climate of southeast Asia. The heat and the large amount of water causes steam to saturate the air and this often results in our "100% humidity." In World War 2, in the south Pacific, soldigers were not accustom to the high degrees of heat and mosture. This kind of environment creates a situation where breathing is difficult. To combat the effect doctors perscribed "goofballs" (benzos). This maximized the amount of oxygen the lungs could take in, in each breath. Ironically, the opposite drug (amphetimines), was being given to the Japanesse army. To deal with the heat, take lots of Valium and drink lots of water...and I have a dehumidifier in my apartment, but that is a luxery most cannot afford. Also, don't take showers, because as soon as you step outside, your drenced in sweat and water from the air.

Sure there is, but that's off topic.

Anyway, Savannah always gets hot and humid in the summer (from about May until September) and off and on in late April and early October.
