I remember choking a lot more in the stifling prickliness of the Dallas heat, specially when you get into the car, and always wanting to shrug off or run from the relentless sun.

When my dad first went down there, he said he felt like parting the water to walk through it, but you get used to it. When we first moved down to TW, we spent the ENTIRE summer eating dinner on the deck because, to us, it felt cooler than Plano.

I could write an entire essay on this comparison, I think!

In Dallas though, you almost always have a bit of wind, but the dryness is much worse for your skin. Definately a tradeoff.

Ah yes, the humidity. Do you find, though, that it protects you from the sun and makes the A/C in the car much more effective, whereas in Dallas it isn't?
We always noticed that Houston was a few degrees cooler on average than Dallas (in summer, but warmer in winter), and the Conroe/Woodlands area even cooler than that.
