Starbucks is already celebrating Pumpkin Season, y'all... And I'm telling you, there's nothing like a toasty Pumpkin Spice Latte in 102 degree Texas weather.

Yes, even after 18 years, I'm still bitter about our later-than-late/nonexistent autumn temperatures.

***Update: Only one day later and the temperature outside is a decent 86 degrees, smack dab in the middle of the afternoon. By no means is that fall worthy, but it's much better than before. Perhaps I spoke too soon, and there's hope for Austin after all.
