This area of Texas is considered 'prime' by many. Not as exceedingly dry as farther west into the desert states and in no way 'muggy', as is farther south. Definitely arid, but easy on the skin. 330 days of sunshine. Some snow in winter, but because of the sun, it doesn't stay on the ground long. Some days in the winter, you can eat outside, if sheltered from the breezes.
