Here Are Two Interesting Things About Austin

One: it may burn to the ground today.

It's supposed to be 97 today, which is off-the-charts hot for mid-October, even down here. It hasn't rained in months, at least not in any measurable way. So we're basically living in a gigantic firewood stand right now, just waiting for a spark.

There's a 375-acre fire in Bastrop now, which is about half an hour away.

So if you see an article about a bajillion acre fire today, it's us.

Two: there's no one left to hire.

I talked to someone who hires new employees for a local burger establishment. He said they can't find anyone left to hire, even at $10/hour to start.
