And last time I was in Dallas, which is Zone 8A, I didn't see one single palm tree.
I'll just take your word for it regarding their cold tolerance. But even then, Zone 9 extends well north of I-10 in Texas, Louisiana and the Atlantic SE (a sliver skirts up the coast through coastal Southern Georgia).

A case in point is Austin, which is Zone 8B in a humid climate. All the Washingtonia they had there got wiped out in a big freeze back in 89? and didn't get replaced

How did this turn into a conversation about Texas forestry? I mean, the original question is a little silly but you can't possibly think Texas is "too cold" in any way.

Cold, fine. Too cold? Debatable.

I actually love winter. Driving in it sucks, but it's so pretty and quiet.

It's too cold in the Arctic Circle.

It can be too cold when there are single digit temperatures and the wind is gusting at 20-30 MPH.

The real question should be when it becomes too hot...
