Cold weather in Texas.

We are in northeast Texas and it is unseasonably cold. Threads of ice tomorrow morning.

I finally figured out the problem. The cold weather is looking for all of the snow birds that are trying to escape the cold by coming south. Please take your cold weather and go back up north with it. The cold weather does not belong here.

Ken

We are down on the MX border McAllen. It is cold....almost got in the 30s last night. The warmer weather should come down with the winter Texans since they are so good for our economy, any astute politician would so all he could to encourage the warm weather.

Saw on TV the cold weather you guys down south are getting. For just a few seconds I was concerned. Then I remembered you are all camping and having fun (and I'm not). \ken

It can get down right cold in TX. We were stationed in Austin 89/90 ? and participated in live Nativity. Wearing Long Johns, we still just about froze to death. The humidity there when it gets cold in Texas it bites right down to the bones.

We hope that is rare for sure as we will be FT in TX this next October.

kro1957, Before you head to Texas next winter, just be sure and uncouple yourself from the cold weather.

By your handle, I'd say it's your fault!

Well it may not belong in Texas, but it does belong to you... all our cold weather comes sweeping down from Alaska ....

Do as we do, live with it!! (That means boots mitts and warm hats with earmuffs, and be grateful it has warmed up by the time it hits Texas!!

Interesting name there, and you complaining of the cold....

Ah! I just took Miya out for her before bed potty and I'm standing out their in shirt sleves and shorts. It's 47 degrees at 10 p.m. I wouldn't want to spend to much time out in it and I'll be happy when spring gets here.

Sound pretty balmy compared to the 6 degrees we had here this morning. Jim
