Being a Native South Texas the weather is pretty normal. The standard weather in a few short words can be described as HOT. It is forever summer in Alice, Texas meaninf shorts and flip flops are a must! Only in the months of November and December are temperatures low and by low I mean around 45 degrees. The need for a coat is rare except on certain occasions when a cold front has managed to make ist way through.

The area in which I am living is just ok. There are a lot of places close to home, such as restaurants and grocery stores, which makes food and living supplies easy to get to. One of the downfalls of this area is that its economy depends on the oil industry which is not good at this very moment. When the oil industry is doing well, or booming, the economy is one hundred percent better. The people in my area are, for the most part, nice, but all of the others are avoided. The atmosphere overall is okay. Good when the oil is good, and ok when oil is out.

The shops located here in Alice, Texas offer a wide variety products and accessibility on every corner there is conienience store which has your typical convince store items such as gas and snacks for the road, aside from your normal convenience store items there are also many household items that are sold for those minor emergency. Living in Alice my whole I have seen the town grow to develop a wide array of restaurants that appeal to just about any body's taste buds. The local clothing stores are few none to get to excited about but provide the community with you basic necessities . clothing wise. There is a local movie theater as well which showcases the newest movies that have just been released and is kept up to date as new movies are released. Though Alice is a small South Texas Town there is plenty to do to keep you busy.
