Wow, this cannot be a coincidence. We also are planning on our first Winter Texan experience. We were thinking the Valley was too far south to drive from Ohio. We were looking at the area between Austin, TX and San Antonio, TX, one of our questions was will it be warm enough for January and February???? We will be watching for comments under the New Braunfels, TX questions. New Braunfels is one of the towns we had under consideration. Thanks for any help.
