When you’re a seasonal phenomenon …
Blame it on El Niño. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, you should be bracing for biting cold and arctic conditions this winter. The climate pattern likely will mean above-average rainfall in Texas from October to May.
When people from up north laugh at you …
It’s a Texas cold front. Cooler temps arrived with more moisture for the Lake Travis area. September rains have brought water levels in Lake Travis up more than 4½ feet, and Lake Buchanan has gone up more than 2 feet.
When you’re not asked to be a hero …
Be a good father-figure. The Watch DOGS program is helping Lake Travis area elementary schools with the presence of positive male role models to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
When you’re missing something …
When you’re all about yoga pants …
On Wednesday, LTL’s Cathy Hale gave you the inside scoop on the grand openings of two pop-up shops at Hill Country Galleria.
When sunsets make you swoon …
Go here if you like capturing sunset pics of Lake Travis and winning stuff.
