It doesn’t feel much like autumn here in South Central Texas. At least compared to places in the US above the Mason-Dixon line. A few minutes ago it was ninety-five degrees in my back yard. Well as they say it is Texas weather. Summers are hot and either dry or humid depending where you are in the state but the rest of the year makes up for that. In September the edge comes off summer temperatures and weather slowly cools until late November when daytime temps reach the mid to upper sixties. That is sweater weather in these parts. Northerners scoff at our thin skins but we just smile. If the weather is good we can take a day trip down to the beach in South Padre on the weekend. We like beach balls more than snowballs.
