AUSTIN (KXAN) - Another freeze is on the way to Central Texas. And as temperatures take a dive, many are now preparing for the cold snap here in Austin.
For some the cold weather is welcomed and for others not so much. As runner hit the hike and bike trail Wednesday, some enjoyed the dropping temperatures.
"I love the cool weather it's fresh and invigorating, so I love it," said Randall Williams.
But ones thing's for certain over in East Austin at the Boggy Creek Farm, where they grow everything from strawberries to lettuce.
"If it all freezes then we don't sell anything," said Carol Ann Sayle, who owns the farm. "The heat, the lack of rain, and the cold are just what we deal with."
Freezing temperatures aren't just bad news it's hard work for Sayle, who spent the last few days covering her crops and bracing for the worse.
"It's a lot of tugging and pulling and carrying sand bags," said Sayle. "So, yeah, it's a workout."
The farm feeds about 400 people a week, but that number heavily depends on the weather. Damage caused by cold temperatures not only effect her crops, but her bottom line.
"There's about 200 crops in one line and they sale for about 300 dollars a piece and it just multiplies there on," said Sayle.
Back in February 2011, an overnight freeze left her farm devastated. She's hoping the freezing temperatures won't stay long so she can reap what she sows. Until then she'll just have to hope for warmer weather.
