I'm sorry, but when I think of a "cold front" I have something totally different in mind!
I like the warm (hot to most folks) days...but when someone refers to the temperature dropping down into the 80's...that to me is NOT a cold front!
Read this story from the Houston Chronicle and see what you think!
Cooler weekend on tap for HoustonBy DALE LEZON Copyright 2010 Houston Chronicle

A brief cool down from recent near 90-degree heat is likely early this weekend as a mild cold front speeds through the region, sparking thunderstorms, high winds and possibly hail north of Houston.
But only a slight chance of rain is expected in the city when the front pushes through to the coast Saturday.
The storms, which may pack high winds and small hail but only light rain, are likely to hit north of Houston along a line from College Station to Conroe, especially late tonight, according to the National Weather Service.
But the front will drop temperatures slightly here as clouds build above the region and winds become northeasterly, forecasters said.
Muggy heat returns late this weekend and early next week, which will be sunny and warm.
Today will be breezy with a high temperature near 91 degrees under partly sunny skies. South/southeast winds will be between 10 mph and 15 mph with gusts as high as 20 mph.
The overnight low will be about 70 degrees. A slight chance of rain is possible.
Saturday, a short break from the heat is likely as the front arrives and winds become east/northeast at 10 mph to 15 mph.
The high temperature dips to 82 degrees under mostly cloudy skies and the overnight low will be about 65.
A slight chance of rain is possible.
Forecasters said muggy heat will begin returning Sunday as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico flows onshore and humidity levels and temperatures gradually climb during the next few days.
The high temperature will be about 85 degrees and the low will be 73. Southeast winds will be between 10 mph and 15 mph with gusts as 20 mph.
Much of next week is forecast to be mostly sunny and hot with highs near 90 degrees and lows in the mid 70s. No rain is forecast.
I think that temperatures in the 80's would be pretty warm for a lot of places in the states, but only in Texas would the weather guys call this a "cold front"...!
Let's get some fresh coffee and sit on the patio, my friends, before this cold front moves in...OK?
