Houston...One sunny, steamy July Sunday, here in BHAM, I was directing traffic at church just as the heat kicked in.  A van pulled up, and the family piled out.  I struck up a welcoming conversation with Dad, and he was almost rhapsodic about how wonderful the weather was.  Taken a bit aback, I asked where they were from...Houston.  :blink:

This bit of data made me appreciate central Alabama even more...

NOLA Bane: You merely adopted the humidity. I was raised in it. MOLDED by it. I didn't know what dry heat was until I went to Texas and I found it STIFLING!

New Orleans in October is impeccable.  That's our real springtime.
