With Austin shattering the record for triple digit days in a single year, we wondered what it was like to work in some of the coldest jobs in Austin. KUT photography intern Daniel Reese produced this video on ice resurfacer Brandon Brewer with Chaparral Ice.

Leander residents whose homes were destroyed by a 30 acre wild fire yesterday have been allowed back into the area.  Fifteen mobile homes in the Horseshoe Trailer Park were consumed by flames. Michael Smolenski lived in one of them with his teenage daughter.

“This all we can afford. Now it was a decent place to live, but it’s gone now. Nothing left," he said.

People got a chance to climb aboard the possible future of Austin's mass transit system on Thursday. Kinkisharyo, a Japanese-based streetcar manufacturer, is taking its new prototype on an American tour.

The streetcar runs on a combination of power from batteries and overhead wires, storing energy when the train brakes and eliminating the need for overhead wires in parts of the route, Kinkisharyo project manager Bill Kleppinger said.

For the past sixteen months, a project to beautify East 7th Street has plagued local businesses.  Construction to improve safety and utilities limited access to restaurants, tax consultants, and convenience stores.  Now that the streets look nicer with fresh paint and new plants, some business owners are wondering if it was all worth it.
