We are supposed to leave on Thursday for Texas. Weather forecast is for single digits and below from now until next week sometime. I have already booked a motel in central Illinois for our first night. After that we hope to stay in campgrounds. Should have left a month ago like we usually do. [emoticon]

Just cleaned off some of the snow this AM. I hope the powdery stuff on the roof blows off as it is too dangerous to try to get it off now.

Weather in South Texas only has one day out of the next ten with a high of 70 F or more. Cold, cloudy and wet today.

Fifty is colder than either South Florida and South Arizona. We may see 70 this Saturday then look forward to highs in the forties for the New Year.

I love South Texas and have been coming here for ten years but if I was buying a ticket to go somewhere for the next two weeks, there are much warmer places to choose from.

I'm pretty convinced we get 2-6 weeks of winter here. If you're a 1,2, or even 3 month snowbird and we get 6 weeks that's the makings for an unhappy camper.

Last couple of winters were in the 2 week range. Very nice.

I know. We got spoiled. Now we are back to normal and it is not as much fun. I have been spending nine or ten months here for the last two years, so a few weeks of winter is not all that bad.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for this winter. Still might get lucky.

Last couple of winters were so nice my park raised the rates by $125/month because we filled up, and they figure they could get away with it. Thinking they're not going to drop it anytime soon when we get the 6 weeks of **** and people don't come. [emoticon]

I know the number of people here in this double RV park..
is very under populated compared to last year..

maybe "They" knew the weather would NOT be like last years near Record high temperatures...

From the National Weather Service for Alamo, Texas:

New Year's Day: Rain or drizzle likely, mainly before noon. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 43. Chance of precipitation is 60%

Enjoy.

I like the beer from the oldest brewery...come on down I'll buy.


Between this park almost doubling their rates since I started coming here, the salt damage I'm always fighting (getting older), and the amount of time I spend being a snowbird going down with each passing year. I just might do that. If I do, I'll bring some Texas Ziegenbock beer for you to try. [emoticon]

On Edit:

BTW, your statement "Hope your kids enjoy the money you saved by wintering in TX" has a lot of wisdom in it.
