It's 34 degrees right now outside (northeast Texas) and I'm cold just thinking about it.

22 here in Northeast WA. Extremely clear, sunny, crisp, and about 4 inches of snow on the ground. Beautiful winter wonderland. Nothing gloomy about it.

It took long enough, but winter finally arrived here. I'm a happy camper.

I hope everyone else is as lucky as I am to be able to live where they love the weather and the overall environment.

It's so strange to read about snow in November being rare. We had our first snow on Sep. 11th! Three months later, it was warmer here than Miami. This area is not for the faint of heart. LOL The cold (and winter) hasn't been bothering me as much lately. It's a combination of factors, but I think mostly because I'm much happier and content overall. I love wearing winter clothes and I've taken up outdoor hobbies. Winter will arrive every year so I might as well make the best of it. My area is really beautiful covered in snow.

Right now it's too cold for me - 36 degrees and icy rain. Blech. Where is our usual 50 degrees with blue skies and sunshine? I WANT IT BACK!

Honestly, with such circumstances, Houston, and the rest of the Coastal South, feel more like jungle paradises ala Amazon than the supposed "hells" people like to describe them as, during the summer.

Furthermore, the loads of subtropical flora, as well as ever-present cumulus clouds, are sources of shade from the sun, and thus also ease the "uncomfort" during summers.

Whoah, what kinds of drugs are you on?

Have you even been to Houston? LMAO
