I'm a native Texan and I have lived and worked in Alaska in -40 F, worked in KS, MO, SD, and ND in the winter. The coldest I have ever been was in Austin, TX when it was mid 20's, 95% humidity, and 30 mph winds. We call that "Collar Creeping Cold". You can feel it going down your collar for sure. Of course it was probably 80 degrees a few days later.

Well, just to show you how cold it has been in Texas, I had to break down and buy some of that, uh . . . . what's it called? . . . oh, anti-seize . . . no . . . anti-freeze. I'm figuring by the time I figure out what to do with it, things should warm up and I can turn the A/C back on again

The name came from my life long career in refrigeration and did some ice making in there as well. Thus the name TXiceman. This is the type of ice meant for mixed drinks, keeping you beer cold and icing down some fish.

So don't blame me fro the ice and cold. we lived north of Toronto for almost two years and that was 2 years too long. We learned it is not fun and returned to southeast Texas.

Sit an unopened bottle inside in the middle of the coach and open the lid and and punch a small hole in the foil covering on cold nights. When it warms up put the cap on and save it until the next cold spell. I have had a couple of bottles for 5 years I wonder if it goes bad.

It is supposed to be clear skies and get down to around 31 degrees with low humidity here in the Houston Texas area tonight. But to tell you the truth it was bone chilling cold a for the last few days at 45 degrees with light rain and drizzle. Its feels good out there now. By Sunday it will be in the 70's they say.

Stay warm my friends.

My goodness, it's 1 degree here this morning!!!! at 0830 bright sun shine 15 MPH winds and 1 degree. No snow on the ground so grateful for that or it would be well below zero!

I debated bringing the 5r down from SD this fall and coming south for a few months but decided not to in order to continue getting stuff done around here for our FT next Sept.

Hope it warms up for you!
And don't worry, we plan to disconnect from freezing weather permanently when we head south next year.
