RE: Temps/humidity

Funny how evrything is a matter of perspective-  to me, Austin,TX is icky
humid!  That of course is compared to Sacramento, where I wish someone would
invent a way to have body lotion come out of the shower instead of water.
My poor skin is toast here all summer.

South Central Texas is also very dry (i.e.San Antonio, Austin, etc.)  Not
of Houston is humid.  Considering how large Houston is....we have tons of
different climates...and two zones (8 & 9)  I'm far west Houston, so am much
drier than far east Houston for example.  But am more humid than San
Antonio.  The
soils are totally different too.

OT....odd way to explain the humidity, but here it goes....... I have
naturally curly hair.  When I got off the plane in Charleston, NC once, I
had an afro in a matter of seconds.  (no joke...at least "i" didn't think it
was funny).  When I go to the beach or far east Texas I get very curly...not
afro, but shirley temple for sure.  Here where I live, it's very manageable.
mom's in San Antonio, I can actually wear straight do's if I want.  But
older, more lazy, I kind of let it go au-natural...minus the friz.

 back ON topic......The Valley (South Texas, south of SA) is dry
what I would consider zone 10, but is listed as 9b.  They rarely if ever
a freeze, if so, then it tips down to 32 and back up.  Major commercial
citrus growing area down there.  Famous Texas Grapefruit, etc.

More than you wanted to know...sorry....
