1. We find flimsy excuses to cancel school and work
Texans definitely have this image of being big, tough, and strong, and are certainly no stranger to natural disasters like earthquakes, tornadoes, and hurricanes. Under the right circumstances, however, we come off as a little fragile: one inch of snow and cities shut down.
2. Just how big Texas is
You wouldn’t believe us anyway. It’s not so much the fact that Texas is big, but that a lot of it – especially to the west — can seem empty. The irony is it was supposed to be even bigger; Texas encompassed what is now New Mexico until the Compromise of 1850.
