One of the reasons, I come down to Texas in the winter is to avoid the worst part of winter back home. (Not to mention all the birding opportunities down here) But I have come to understand that this area is not all sunshine and warm temperatures, especially in January and February and even in March. There are large fluctuations in temperature extremes. For example, since early last week, daily highs have ranged between 3 C to 14 C with a lot of drizzly rain. The next couple of days temperatures are going to be up around 29 C. Then starting Thursday, temperatures will fall again down to a high of 6 C with rain. Up and down. But when I look at the pictures of back home, I can’t complain.
A friend of mine has to drive to work in London from Strathroy several times each week. That drive can be treacherous. So be careful.
