    Welcome to the forums. I live in Hidalgo county on the MEX border in winters, and next to the nations capitol in the summers. We have two 2nd gen LX escorts at each residence, a 91 hatchback and a 92 wagon here in VA, and a 93 hatchback and 94LX wagon in TX. We have another 94LX wagon that we use to 'commute' back and forth.

    That sounds pretty close to ideal! Warm winters and cool summers. Though with a name like denisond3 I was wondering if you were from my old home town in Grayson County, TX.

    "Warm winters and cool summers."

    Washington D.C. is cool in summer?
    I was near there a few years ago in summer and it seemed pretty warm. But then again, 75 is hot enough for me.

    Still here in San Antonio, Tx. My 93 EGT is still purring as my daily driver after all these 100+ degree summer days. My Escort's A/C finally going out is not very helpful. Regardless, the heat is normal here, but when its mixed with the high humidity, that'll kill ya. :dead:

    Yes it gets hot in northern VA, but the humidity is lower than the Texas normal and the hot spells are not as pervasive as in TX. Since our part of Texas is not far from the Gulf of Mexico, there is a nice breeze on about 4 of 5 days. Being in a shady area with the breeze its fairly comfy. The main problem is mosquitos as soon as the sun gets low in the sky.
    Most of my wife's relatives live south of the U.S. border, so we visit across the river frequently.

    Well...relatively. It's not like Dallas where it's 105 degrees in August. We set a record this month for the number of 100+ days in September.
