I am so jealous of the weather in Houston. Here in MN we are buried under the snow. A week ago we got a big snow storm with the total accumulation of 2 feet of snow. Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiLPMx4gMLg
After that big storm followed by cold temps of single digits to subzero, the packed snow from the storm has became boulders like. We have to chunk it out as blocks to remove them off of our drive way. No fun. It sucks.

Today another storm is passing through our area with the total accumulation predicted 4-8 inches. Where on earth can we house all this snow? I haven't gotten a clue. The storm was predicted to taper off through the night. We then have a break for Wednesday with no snow then another storm has been forecasted to move through our area Thursday. We are doomed. Seriously. Year 2012 has arrived!

BTW, it's only December and in MN we've already gotten more than 3 feet of snow. Yay yay yay. This means flood big time when spring comes...and by that I meant later April to May.

Yeah the weather is getting a bit out of hand now. Nice humidity to go along with it. Wasn't it in the 40's just last week?

Wow, that's tough! I like the snow, but just while visiting northern cities. Houston really isn't that bad. October-May are extremely pleasant!

Bah humbug. It's lovely outside. Nobody's home will be taken over by mold & mildew because they open the windows for a bit.

Weather works for me. I'll take it over September weather everyday of the week and twice on Sundays.

Hate to be a wet blanket, but i'll never understand how people can tolerate a warm december . what happened to people enjoying the BALANCE of four seasons? what happened to dreaming of a white christmas? ....i'm sorry, but holiday decorations and santa claus hats when it's 78 degrees and humid outside has to be the most ridiculous and nauseating thing in the world. not to mention those people that insist on wearing winter fashion just because it's december; never mind the fact that it's warm and sunny outside .....makes me itch

people may envy houston's weather, but the region of the country with the most desirable weather IMO is the upper southeast (north georgia, north carolina, tenn, etc). their winters are considerably mild (but more winter-like) WITHOUT the broiling, seemingly neverending summer temps that houston has.

Nobody said Houston had the most desirable weather in the nation. Just that yesterday was pretty nice for December. Today is stretching it a bit.

Not sure I understand the question of what happened to dreaming of a white Christmas. Not everyone in the US (or the world for that matter) even knows what a white Christmas is about. Not everyone cares, either. Just enjoy the holidays and be merry and all that good stuff! And I will continue to enjoy walking in a tee-shirt in late December. Makes Christmas shopping easier when I don't have to wear some big bulky coat. Or shovel snow. Appreciate the small things and you will be happier! Merry Christmas
