It is spring in Austin. The weather was beautiful! Chilly in the mornings and cool in the sunny afternoons. The bluebonnets are in bloom. This is just the prettiest time of year in Austin.
That is why it was even harder to pack up and leave this week.
I asked myself, and CGMan, why it couldn’t be 110 degrees outside, like it is in the summer, or maybe thunderstorming with big-ass hail that sends us scurrying for cover? You know, something to make me glad I am leaving. It’s just too hard to leave when it is as beautiful as this.

You can keep all your creepy critters and your beautiful springs.
