Yesterday we broke a record for consecutive days of triple-digit heat – 70 days! Then today we got a break. This afternoon, I heard a weird noise – it was rain! Very short, but we’re thankful for anything after months without. And we didn’t even hit 100. We broke the record then got a break. The forecast is for more high temps for the next weeks, but maybe we’ll get another respite. It’s been a brutal summer.
So I’m posting this picture to remind myself that it occasionally gets cold in Austin. And someday we might have more relief. Though it’s extra-depressing that this picture was taken in February, and our “yard” is greener than it is now.
