Compared to the northern United States, Austin’s winters are incredibly mild, but that doesn’t mean we don’t experience our fair share of biting north winds, dreary overcast skies, and freezing temperatures. And sleet. Lots of freaking sleet.
If you’re Texas born and raised, then you’ve probably learned to appreciate Texas’ warmer climate and plentiful sunshine, and it’s probably safe to assume that, when your face and fingers and toes are aching in the bitter cold, the native Texan in you longs for summer.
Sound familiar? Then sorry, but these 10 photos of summer in Austin are only going to make your pining worse. Much much worse:
1.) It’s been so long since we’ve paddled Lady Bird Lake
2.) And There’s nothing as warm and wonderful as a Texas summer sunset
3.) our Dogs just aren’t as happy without their weekly swim
4.) … And neither are we
5.) Sailing Lake Travis is just better in shorts
