I will be the first one to admit, that I get too dramatic when it gets cold in Texas.

I'm originally from Chicago, born and raised in the Windy City. The weather has two extremes: It gets very cold in the winter months, and extremely hot in the summer (not as hot as Texas, though).

But when it gets cold...it gets cold!

Our winter weather would average being in the teens from November (or sooner) through March (sometimes later), with windchills below 20 below zero and lower.

Every time I make a reference to the cold weather here, someone from Texas says, "You should be used to this, you're from Chicago". 

Blah blah blah....



I'll Take This Meteorological Seesaw Anyday


I've been so used to it being 90 degrees at 10:00 at night here in Texas, I just knew I wouldn't look back.

But here we are.

Although, I'm not complaining.

I'm ok with 2 cold days, then a relatively warm day, then it being cold again, then being rewarded with 2 consecutive 75 degree days.




It'll All Be Over Soon

As we all know, toward the middle of March the weather is going to start getting warmer, but there's also the occasional cold day.

And with that cold day, comes a lot of complaining.

Here Are 6 New Businesses That Opened In Killeen, Texas in 2021

I've watched the local news for a long time just to get in tune with current events weather etc.
Once a week there used to be a food critic who had a feature on the news, and he would visit different restaurants in the city and taste their food on camera.

Tamika, one of our account executives here at the station, saw the same types of food reviews on the news and suggested it would be a good idea that I do the same thing with businesses and restaurants here in Killeen.
And here we are today!
So far, I've visited 5 Killeen restaurants and one out in Temple with 6 different vibes and food choices.
