Not last winter, but the winter before (2010), the first week of February it was COLD and icy. I mean, like it iced up our deck and porch and there was no school for three days.
It was 45 degrees INside the house (no furnace), and in the 20s outside. But after about three days of that, it was back in the 70s. The fun thing I did was walk around the neighborhhood and watch people's pipes burst and their houses flood. Ok, that wasn't fun- but I found the water department guys on a Saturday and they went around and shut the water off of people that weren't around or where they saw water spilling out. One house had water cascading all over the house, and down the stairs, due to a water break. That area is mostly "summer homes" or non-resident homes and it was a real mess.
That was a quite a bit south of Dallas, on the Gulf Coast near Corpus Christi.
Last year, there were a couple of nights below freezing but nothing too harsh.
(We spend a couple of months each winter in S. Texas).
