There's one thing in Texas that we all dread coming: the heat.

The entire state prepares for the searing hot temperatures the summer months bring. With temps hitting triple digits more often, many simply try to avoid going outside for long periods of time. But more than just us, the heat Texas affect everything us as well.

We've all seen the grass turn brown, as well as water restrictions be in place to help ease the stress of the season. But, things could potentially get worse for the state of Texas if another extremely hot summer happens in the Lone Star State.

If trends are to continue, the Texas water supply itself could face major problems.

So everyone, looks like we'll need to start doing our rain dances!
