Besides, if it is like you say and is 70 one day, then 40 the next, then of course the 40 degree day would seem really cold in contrast.
For the days that do happen to get cold, I'm sure I'll be fine layering clothes and wearing a sweater. From what I've been reading from you alls responses, I would only maybe wear a coat a few times out of the year, and that's not enough for me to bring one. I was assuming that maybe I'd need one for at least a whole one or two months (perhaps in dec and jan), but since that's not the case, I'll leave that stuff here for my visits home.
Now, as far as the summers, my doctor told me that I was going to turn into a heathen, because after spending one summer in Houston, I wouldn't be afraid to go to hell. lol. (love that guy)
Your doctor is right, after a summer here, you're probably start packing to move back.

Every day was cold???? Most days except for the snow day, it was in the 70's.

Not everyday, but a lot of days especially at night. I am from California so I can how cold is. I wish we had more colder days though.

Texans are always saying "you wont need that coat" or "I wore flip-flops and a thong on Christmas" but everyone here seems to forget just how unpredictable southern winters are.

You have four wool coats? Bring em. Just don't buy anymore. YOU NEVER KNOW.

A few years ago I moved to San Antonio just knowing I would never need any type of winter gear and I paid for it with frozen ears and wind-burnt skin (you can still kinda see the scars). Some of the posters here are acting like it never has and never will get way below freezing in Texas. Is it likely? NO. But its better to be safe than sorry.
THIS post ended up being the most accurate. Thanks...
