I'm not from Texas, but Louisiana ain't much different from our neighbor to the west, just more humid. Our overnight lows right now are around 75°F and our daytime highs are still almost 90°F.
Still, I can remember back in the last Ice Age when 30°F was warm. I lived in northern Maine for four years as a kid, when my dad was stationed at Loring AFB. We lived in an uninsulated 38'×8' mobile home, and I can still remember getting out to pile snow higher against the trailer walls to block the wind. Frost on the inside walls all winter, melting snow in a pot on the stove for bathing water. Bright orange flags on all four fenders of the family car so the snowplows don't run over it when they clear the roads. Oh, the joys of 24/7 below-freezing temps for three months straight…
I don't miss it. At all. Except being able to sometimes see the Aurora Borealis from our front yard. That was nice.
