We returned after 2 weeks absence and found we need to drive with the headlights on till 8:20 AM. The green has almost all disappeared, except for the lawns, the Sitka Spruce, and the moss on the trees. Temperature at 2 PM was 39 degrees. Ice remained in the puddles.
But there is one thing we really enjoyed on our return: the thirst quenching drinking water. No, the tap water in Texas does not quench the thirst. And no, the store bought bottled water does not compare our our fresh tasting tap water.
