It's a week before Christmas....and it's 84 degrees.
"If you don't like the weather in Texas, just stick around for a few hours." I have heard this time and time again. It's mostly true, by the way, however, the fact that you have to keep an umbrella handy, a coat in the car, or a few tank tops in the top drawer (because it is December and you have sweated your way through one of them already this morning) doesn't take away from the fact that it is a week before Christmas, and it is 84 degrees.
I'm not a complete idiot. I understand this is Texas and it can be grotesquely warm much of the time. Still, when 84 flippin' degrees hits you in the face while you're doing your last minute shopping - it's a buzzkill. Major Buzzkill.
Just something to consider when you start dreaming of your Texas McMansions and an abundance of bbq.
