Real winter weather has settled into South Texas like it has been here forever. In the old days, these cold fronts would roll in and just as quickly roll out, leaving the sun to warm up the air. Weather is different in present time, and I haven't seen the sun in days. Temperatures are hovering around 34 degrees so the Angels are not yet frozen! The good thing about this cold is the persimmons are now ripe and yummy! I have shared info below from Wikipedia about the Persimmon, my favorite fall tree and fruit. Enjoy!
