80's aren't bad. It's just that in the winter it'll be 80 during the day and 30 at night...and in the summer it'll be 100 during the day and 90 at night. Why can't it be a bigger day/night temperature differential in the summer, too

Yeah, I agree. It would be nice if summer temps dropped to say 50's at night.

If I could only pick ONE reason, I wouldn't have moved.

Most of Texas is pretty humid...and you won't find huge 24-hour spreads in temperature because of that.

West Texas used to have greater spreads until it started growing--more lawns, golf courses, area lakes, etc...all contributed to higher humidity levels overall.

Still, you'll find 90s/high 50s in the same 24-hour period in July at relatively dry Fort Davis/Marfa/Alpine.

OP: I'm with you. I moved to TX for more than one reason, but had TX been located in a cold climate, it would had never been on my radar.

Mine is weather.

If I never see snow or weeks long 20 degree weather again, it'll be too soon! Ohio winters are slowly driving me mad. I can't get to Texas soon enough!

Your turn!
how funny! i had the same situation in ohio 2 years ago--couldnt wait to get to texas as i was getting really sick of snow and depressed with the cold dreary winters in cleveland.

when i got to austin, man! i was like duck to water! walked around the neighborhood and biked around regularly--something i never did in ohio. of course, the summer of 2011 was waaaaaaay hotter than 2010, but i tolerate heat better than cold. i hope this year's summer will be milder, back to how it was in 2010 or better.

I was born in Mich. but left as soon as I learned to crawl. Dad was up there working.

I've grown up here and would only leave for a summer home in Maine on a lake. Texas is home.

I'll second this ... and in truth, the blend of southern and western may 'account' for the people/culture so it may actually be one reason.
