Texas-------And THAT is the damn truth! There is nothing like grabbin' onto the handle of the car door and pullin' your damn hand back, yelling, "Holy shit that hurt!" OR not being able to drive because the steering wheel is too hot!
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. Except in the winter, where you park as close as possible, and then RUN from the car to the door so you don't have to put on a coat, since you know you'll be hot once you get inside.
