I do admit though to disliking it when it's 65 degrees at Christmas. Of course, it's not always that way - just a few years ago we had a white Christmas here. But last year it was warmish and no, I didn't care for that.

What I do love here is the wet, icy January's and February's - that's about all the cold weather I want and I get to have a fire in the hearth, drink hot tea, all that good stuff - for two months. Then I'm totally over it.
I totally understand. Last couple of days in Denver have been nippy and I thought of you lol.

Great thing is if it's too cold, usually I get to work from home, and I love watching snowfall when I am indoors.

Texas def has 4 seasons they have a winter especially Northern Texas gets some snow and ice. TN has the best 4 seasons thou nearly perfect 4 seasons even thou it has a bit of a shorter winter compared to a lot of places.

That's still unseasonably high, though. Average lows now should be in the 40s down there. Though they've had a cool end to October so what's one more day in the 90s?

From what I see in my search it seems like states like TN, KY, VA, MD and NC have perfect balances of the 4 seasons (cold, not absolutely freezing winters, warm springs, hot summers, and cool falls)

I'd say anywhere north of I-20 in Texas definitely has 4 seasons. South of I-20 it starts to shift gradually as you go south. Also its interesting how I-20 curves southwest because I feel it works like that for weather. West Texas gets colder winters at lower latitudes because its drier and higher elevation.

I don't know what the high was in Dallas today because I don't live in Dallas (and it has more extreme weather in just about every direction than we have further east), but the news last night was saying it could hit the highest temp ever recorded in the Dallas area in November today. So that means it's an anomaly and not the norm but it's definitely not my preference for November.

Today's high here was 84 which I didn't much care for but at least it was quite windy. Right now it's 70 degrees and very pleasant outside so I plan to retire to the back patio with a glass of vino in a bit.

It will get down into the mid 60s tonight and that's fine by me. Next week about this time the forecast is for clear skies with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s and we're planning a patio party with a big fire in the fire pit and it should be fabulous!

It "only" reached 84 here today in northeast Texas, which is still unseasonably warm. Just two nights ago I was wearing boots and a coat and shivering in the cold rain running into the movie theater with wind and temps in the 40s so yeah, this is an unusual weather pattern for this time of year. Anyway, tomorrow the highs should be in the 70s with lows in the 60s and then we're in for a few unseasonably warm days (low 80s) till another cold front comes in Tuesday dropping the temps to the more typical highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s with lots of sunshine.

I much prefer that for November. But hey, at least we've got plenty of sunshine and a nice wind that's swirling the fall leaves around - and we've got some decent fall color starting (November is the month for fall color in much of Texas).
