Editor's Note: Notes from the Stormwatch

I constantly have to remind myself these days that there is a huge influx of new arrivals to the Savannah area. Many of them don't really find out until they get here that we have things like cockroaches, mosquitoes, gnats, ungodly humidity -- and hurricanes.
