At the end of last year, Axios Dallas asked readers to tell us what they thought this new year might have in store for North Texas.

  • Whew boy, did they deliver some spectacular prognostications.

Here are a few of the choice forecasts readers sent in:

Patrick D.: Poorly protected gas-fired generating plants will fail again, crashing the Texas grid again. This creates an excuse to burn books to warm Texans who cannot afford to fly to Cancun.

Joni C.: The public will finally learn about Mayor Johnson's very surprising tattoo.

Syed F.: Someone at 1500 Marilla will vote for strong ethics reform and almost immediately get caught with a hand in the cookie jar.

Trish H.: The city of Dallas will come full circle and ban bans.

Dominique A.: At least one of the losing gubernatorial candidates will claim the reason is voter fraud.

Tom W.: Texas conservatives will start etching short quotes from the 1619 Project onto the barrels of their guns.

Michael M.: The Cowboys will find some creative new way to obliterate the hearts of the fans right when it hurts the most.
