    I'm from the greatest state of them all TEXAS!

    ! The state where you can go from wearing shorts one day to full on winter stuff the next. We have some of the best food around.

    I live near Houston Texas.

    I actually live near Bush Airport in Humble. I moved to the Houston area when I was 8. I love it here. The mild winters are good and there is a lot to do here when the weather cools off. No place I would rather live

    For everyone who lives outside of Texas,

    who would go back if Texas becomes its own country again? Cuz I know from several of my family members- all Texans themselves- know that Texas is under a treaty with the U.S. so that means that Texas can pull out of the Union at anytime it pleases and the government wouldnt be...

    I am a trucker, sitting in Vermont,

    Originally from true West Texas,

    I make my home in Central Texas now! The blackland prairie to be exact. Texas isn't any better or worse than most other places, but it is for damn sure different. The West Texas I grew up in was oil towns and ranches. Men there don't do manicures and facials...... You work...

    Born and raised in the Texas Panhandle.

    Wouldn't trade it for the world. They say if you don't like the weather stick around for 15 minutes, it will change. I've seen snow in June and upper 90s in December

    And I love it. Been here all my life,

    I have the accent to prove it. Lol This weather though is going to kill me. I have never grown accustomed to the heat! My siblings do just fine, and if it gets over 95 I'm pissed off about life. Lol

    The Texas Bluebonnet's are blooming,

    a sure fire sign that spring has arrived.  It's not really legal to pick them, I took this one off private property so technically I'm legal with the State, but perhaps not so much with the landowner!  I don't think they'd mind with a little explanation.  I picked...
