When it comes to summer, Texans are some of the toughest folks around. We endure day after day of 100 plus degree temps with little to no rain and WE ENJOY IT. Our attitudes change drastically, though, at just the thought of freezing temps. For us, the exact temperature of freezing is not your standard 32 degrees. Anything below 50? Yep, that’s cold enough for us.
So what do Texans do to survive the arctic, wintry weather that arrives sporadically a whopping 19 days (on average in Austin) in a year?
Before even thinking about going outdoors, we put on at least five layers of clothing; tank top, long johns, t-shirt, sweatshirt and the big finale, the giant, insulated jacket. And that’s just the top half of our body!
So get your scarves, hats, leggings and long johns ready, Texans, because winter has officially arrived!
