For those us us that don't live in Texas, getting cold is just part of the yearly tromp of the seasons. It's warm, then it's cold, then it's warm again.
Here in Texas, the flow of seasons is a lot less complex. It's very danged hot, then it gets very hot, then it goes back to very danged hot.
This year was an exception. We actually had coldness. The temperatures dipped down below freezing for almost two hours. Two hours!
There was also "snow" but it all melted as it fell from the sky.
