    Peter, I’m in Bee Cave, near Spicewood and Lakeway, best place to be in Austin in my opinion. Airport is 22 miles from me. Message me if you want to talk.

    After a week over 100 my pool water feels more like bath water. There is no chill to it.

    2011 had a few more days over 100 (I think 71 versus 69) but they were 100-105 mostly. 1980 had lots of days over 105 up to 113.

    So far this year only 3 or 4.

    Any local services that will dump ice in your pool?

    You can get a water cooler for your pool. My aunt and uncle have one.

    My pea-brain says if you can get a 500 pound block delivered and if you could chunk it up a bit, you could maybe get 12-18 hours of some level of chilled down.

    Welcome to Texas. Check out the town of Wimberley, laid back little place just south of Austin.
