On the 25th of January, we had a low of 21F and a high of 66F, the 26th low of 27F and high of 76F. By the 28th we were at a low of 27F and high of 37F. By the 31 we were at 78F for a high and 47F for the low. yesterday we had a high of 77F and it's been dropping steadily since 6PM yesterday. Currently it's 39F and going to be down to 27F again tonight. Running the A/C one day and back to the heat the next, our house doesn't have any kind of cross flow to use the open windows and on sunny warm days it gets pretty warm upstairs in the bedrooms. Yesterday was a pretty day and I couldn't get motivated to do anything, today I feel like working outside and it's cold, wet and windy, so no working outside.

 

I'm done ranting now, thanks for listening!

I'll trade you. We had highs in the teens and twenties with lows around zero at mid week. Today it was 29 at sunrise and is 50 right now. Everything is muddy.  It will snow/rain tomorrow and drop into the teens tomorow night. Crazy weather but we can't do anything about the weather.

 

Our houses can be changed to better weather  these changes by increasing insulation and thermal mass. A large basement full of GTs and related accessories will hold its temperature longer. Good Luck, Rick

I would love to have your lows for highs here! We haven't hit 20* for a while now and getting sick of it.

You know its been cold out when 5* feels warm.

Rick, I would be very happy to have your set up where almost the whole basement is my workshop. Out here most homes don't even have a basement, what a loss of cheap square footage in a home.

I feel your pain, Brian. Been up and down here too, just not as warm and a bit chillier. Low tonight is going into the lower teens and have about an inch of snow on the ground. Another round coming mid week.

Guys, I'm not complaining about the actual Temps., it's the wild swings from day to day that is getting to me. I was in a Tee shirt in the shop on Friday and working up a sweat turning a shaft in the lathe. On Tuesday last week had two layers on and was still chilled.

I didn't think you were. We all pretty much choose where we live, but its always nice to vent once in a while.

Hard to get used to the Temps. when it varies so much from day to day. I grew up in Indiana and know the cold for sure as we always had Hogs that waiting until 3AM on the coldest day of the year to pig, but it seemed that it would get cold gradually around Oct. or Nov. and stay around freezing until March when start warming back up for Spring.

Texas does have some wild weather swings.

 

Not just from day to day, but all in one day as well.

 

I was in basic training at Lackland AFB in Dec '64, and I remember one day in particular.

 

When we went to the chow hall for breakfast, we were wearing our field jackets and it was snowing.

 

By late afternoon when we were doing PT, we were in shorts and T-Shirts, sweating like pigs because of the heat.
