Fort Worth Weekly Email

May 27, 2015

Hey Fort Worth,

El Nino is here. Get your rowboats and umbrellas ready, because we're in for a very rainy summer. But seriously, in my 6 years in Texas I've gotten used to the idea that summer (aka 100+ degree heat) pretty much lasts from April to October. Lake Travis in Austin has risen 24 feet in 7 days, and it's still rising! Be sure to stay safe, stay dry, and stay thirsty my friends.
