Ouch... I'd almost be willing to trade you for some of your 40*C for some of our 40*F right now. Almost... But not quite.

In the summer we get some of that 100*+ temps here along with 90%+ humidity.

Your temps might be high, but what is the humidity?
Your reports say 'dry', so I'm assuming your humidities are low?

I know what you are going through (well, at least I think I do). We are on water restrictions, too. Raleigh has about a 93 day supply of water, and Durham, our neighboring city, has about 30 some days. All of our lakes and rivers are running dry.

We are getting some rain right now, but I've read where it'll take around 18 months of normal rainfall to bring us back up to normal. However, that normal rainfall isn't expected.

You certainly wouldn't expect something like that in the Eastern US.
