Oh I forgot about the warming of the earth. Yes it won't be too many mor e years before we are zone 9 and can grow without much worry citrus and the like. I would like an avocado tree myself.. But seriously, we still have fall colors every year and shed to bare, the grass browns, winter is here. Shorter days, chilly frosty nights, some well below freezing nights,drizzly rain, occasional ice storms (God Forbid), light snow, sleet, daytime temps below 32F. That is what I've seen here in my life.
I live in Temple and used to live in San Antonio where warm weather is expected year round.

I've always been jealous of NE Texas and how their seasons are more distinct with fall color and more cold days. But isn't northeast Texas in the same zone pattern as like Atlanta?

Yes, for the most part. I guess that not all of Texas has the same winter as does NE Tx, but then again, I know the panhandle is really cold sometimes.

According to weatherbug, today atlanta reported a high of 91 degrees. And the forecast over the next few days predicts mid to high 80s.

No offense, but THIS is what you call horrid heat?

It depends on the humidity. It was humid today, so it felt very horrid to me.

Southern summers. I can't stand hot weather. The cold on the other hand is something that is managable.

I lived in New York state most of my life, both upstate NY near Canada and NYC. We moved to the Atlanta area 3 years ago. I haven't adjusted to the long hot humid brutal southern summers yet. IMO the spring and fall months here are too hot.

I would much rather endure northern winters than southern summers. Outdoor activities are enjoyable all year in the north. It's impossible to enjoy the outdoors here in Georgia during the summer months.
