You can tell winter is coming to Austin when..

  1. You can leave lip-balm in the car, the air is so dry you'll need it...
  2. You can finally drive with the top down on your convertible
  3. There is only one guy running on the Hike and Bike trail without a shirt on..
  4. The smoking lobbiests outside buildings on Congress are starting to huddle together, even when though don't know each other
  5. Up on the drag the majority of the guys have switched from shorts to jeans
  6. The blue skies still go on forever, you just can't see them after 7pm
  7. Arriving t swim at Barton springs, you note the steam rising from the water
And how can you tell when winter is here? Mac Brown should be looking for A new job, hook 'em.
