I'm in Austin in the summer and Winnipeg, CA, in the winter.
I much prefer the former.

while I don't like being too hot or too cold, atleast being cold energizes me and keeps me awake. But being hot drains all of my energy and makes me feel depressed. Especially if you work outside like me.

I love the winter, but only for a short time. It drags on much to long.

At least, in the cold, you can add another layer. The heat is the worst.

Well, I saw the downtown area....
It was in that general area.
Does it make a difference?
There was freeways and everything.

The rest stop threw me off. Is that the only place you been to Houston? Or simply, the only time you been to Houston. You don't see rest stops in the middle of a city. try to take a trip back in there in December. Some of the greatest weather in the country to most people.

That has happened here in Indiana also. The greatest drop I've seen in one hour was 26 degrees.

If you came to Indiana you would be definetly surprised. I see lots of Florida and Georgia plates during the summer months.

Well actually I have to agree with Venom here, Spade. I mean where he was in the area is pretty irrelevant to the weather. It's not as if the climate magically changes as soon as you pass the "NOW ENTERING HOUSTON" Sign. If anything it'll seem hotter thanks to all that concrete.

But if it's 105 degrees at a rest stop in Conroe, its probably gonna be 105 in Houston.

And yes December in Texas is nice (if you don't need cold weather)
