I agree about the snow making it feel like a prison when you own a z especially when the snow gets to be about 7 1/2 feet high after cleaning the drive way and you get dumped with 150cm of snow up at the cottage. This is in Wasaga beach, ontario, canada.
Well so far we've had three whole days of winter - that means in the 20's for Houston. But Today I had to turn on the A/C so I could sleep. 78*
In Houston we never put away summer clothes or cars. But in August - if you don't have a good A/C in the car - you avoid driving in the afternoon - the roads melt, the tires melt and you've already passed out from heat exhaustion.
