In 2011 the Texas Summer had between 70 and 85 days of 100 degrees or hotter. My family up north all said the same thing...

"How can anyone live in that?"

Now people down here are wondering the same thing about the folks up north.

My old hometown received between 12 and 18 inches of snow over Christmas. Combine that with 60 mph winds, it made for some fun times.

It didn't really make much noise nationally, since it's what people expect out of the Dakota's. But it is a little rare that the only advised means of travel in the city is with snow mobiles.

I tell everyone down here that they need to spend on winter up north to truly appreciate the weather down here. It may seem a little schizophrenic, as I used both the heater and air conditioner in a 3 day span, but really, it's better than wondering if your roof is going to cave in due to all the snow.

They even experienced Thundersnow and Lightning.

THUNDERSNOW and Lightning!
