A Rio Grande Valley Winter

We are currently experiencing a Rio Grande Valley Winter here in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The temperatures during the day have been in the 60s with lows in the 40s. Obviously, it's nice to be away from the heat back home. However, we are beginning to worry that we may experience a frost or two before we head back home. There is always the possibility of an early snow. We are absolutely glad that we won't be here for the 50 below temperatures that Rice Lake experiences in the Winter. For now, we have the windows closed and the heaters on. The leaves are beginning to change colors. Where the sun used to rise around 4:30 am, it is now rising at 6:30 and getting later. We used to have sunlight until about 9 pm. It starts getting dark earlier too.
When we get back home in the RGV, it will be warm. Then it will start to get cool. Then it will warm again. Two RGV winters in one year.
