November in Austin (revised)

Ok, so I want to say 'what gives?' about how the rest of my week has turned out.  On Thursday I blogged about how hot it's been, on Friday it rained and dropped a few degrees, on Saturday it turned freezing (I mean literally freezing: 0°C!!! or 32°F) and there was a severe weather condition warning advising everyone to stay inside; then today has been just as freezing with a 60% chance of snow!!

I became a little spooked when I heard over the radio that this is the coldest Austin has been since January 2011! - I even nervously joked about how mother nature read my blog and took offense to my claims - until I spoke to several locals who assured me that this is completely normal in Austin and quite the way it always works: one day it's hot, the next it could be raining/ snowing/ or hot again. 

So now I know: the weather in Austin is just one of the things that keeps it weird.  For those who don't know: Austin's slogan is Keep Austin Weird an ode to the hippies, farmers, musicians and liberals who at one point made up the majority of its population.  Now it's just a cover for any crazy behavior you may wish to exhibit on any given day - allowing you to get away with it as long as you say 'I'm just doing my part to keep Austin weird!'
