Hopefully it will be a short cold stretch for all of us in the valley this winter. Like TomG2 said, it's hard to believe the weather forecasters.

I do know a few days ago we were shopping at HEB and a tourist was saying his family will NEVER come back here EVER again. Thinking those rosy weather forecasts do as much damage as they do good.

Happy 2018.

You should be good to ride about Friday. Notice how it is always going to be good in three or four days? When I was a kid in Illinois, I used to ride my bike to school at anything over 32 degrees. I never thought that rule would come into play in South Texas.

No location is heaven ..

last winter.. south Texas averaged 10 degrees about average. all winter.
many 80 degree days..

mother nature doing the automatic adjustments.. aka gov-ment global warming.

Az could be this way next year..

just like N.E. Ohio past 2 winters.. very warm and little snow... this year lots of snow and below zero temps...

similar to 1978..

and Florida.. count the number of times they LOST all the fruit crops... frost/ice/freezing rain/// etc.

First time in two years that I got a call from my sister in Florida asking about the weather in South Texas. She has the Weather Channel too.

That is a hoax to justify higher prices. The citrus harvests are almost always done before the damaging freezes. And that is in Central Florida. Seldom in the Miami, Naples corridor. Much warmer in South Florida than in other parts. A LOT more expensive than South Texas though.
