    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

    which isn't a real trucker friendly state. I will be glad to get home in a couple of weeks. There is no place like Texas!

    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

    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
