Boy, do weather guessers have good news for the future. As the summer of yellow lawns and falling branches has been the subject on news media and cocktail conversations, the predictions are forecasting that the end is in sight.
If you’ll just bear with your vegetation and soaring electrical bills a little longer, the predictions are that after the first couple of days in October, the temperatures will hightail it to the 80s, waving bye-bye to the 90s and the triple-digit temps that have scoured the area.
Oh, visions of stoking up fire pits and chimineas with pinion wood and digging through closets for cashmere sweaters, knee-high boots and cuddly duvets.
That’s all the smiley face good news. On the other hand, Debbie Downer types are reminding that the area’s scourge will appear to hold anchor until then. While the late Karen Carpenter may have boo-hooed rainy days and Mondays, North Texans are holding their collective breath that showers are to come.
So set aside some time to dig out those wool skirts and send them to the cleaners to rid them of that moth-ball scent.
