Dear Texas

Dear Texas,

I love you so very much it’s almost unhealthy.

You are without a doubt, the best piece of land under the sun.

You are a wonderful home, and I could not imagine living anywhere else. You are a magnificent place.

However, I do have one bone to pick with you.

It is October, and it is entirely too hot.

It’s fall, Texas, and I wish you would act like it.

I just want to wear my boots and sweaters, but because you refuse to lower the temperatures, I cannot do so.

I’m not asking for snow or anything, I just want it to be cool enough to wear flannel and drink hot coffee outside without sweating.

This warm weather in October is completely killing my vibes.

It just doesn’t feel right picking pumpkins when you are wearing shorts.

I know Texas is known for crazy weather and high temperatures, but just once I wish that we could have an actual fall.

I’d like for the temperatures to drop and for the leaves to change color.

Autumn should be filled with sweaters, pumpkin everything, scary movies and cool temperatures, not air conditioning working overtime and mosquitoes still pestering Texans.

Historically, fall and spring in Texas generally last somewhere between a few days to a week.

Frankly, that is just not acceptable.

Come on, Texas, you are better than this. I know you are.

All I am asking for is reprieve from the heat.

Just let the sun take a break from beating down on your patrons and life will be good.

So in conclusion, Texas, if you could just cool it for a while, that would be great.
