Good god, we're in for a hot summer. The upside is that I'm tired of wearing a jacket.
Historically, we still have a chance at another freeze this spring. Our average last freeze is March 16th, says a landscape designer friend.
Still, I think it's safe to say we'll hit 100 degrees by April. If you're going to move to Austin and you happen to have a black car (as I do), consider selling it first. Or look into tinted windows.
In other news, a UT professor is predicting that we will come out of our drought this summer. (For those of you who are unaware, we're currently up shit creek in terms of water levels. Lake Travis is down 17 feet.)
