You might be a Texan living in Colorado...

- If your heavy winter coat really only does you any good between forty and sixty five degrees.

- Related: if you actually wear a jacket when it's sixty five degrees.

- If you find yourself shopping for rain boots.

- If you are surprised that it's not common practice to recite the Pledge to the Colorado flag in conjunction with the Pledge of Allegiance. Is there a pledge to the Colorado flag?

- If you text your family and post on Facebook every time it snows.

- Related: if, after 3 hours of heavy snow, you have to resist the urge to pick the kids up from school early, because surely they're just trying to get everyone home safe and sound, because WEATHER EVENT.

- Related: if, you start a new tradition of frozen pizza for supper to celebrate the first snow of the season because you couldn't pull yourself away from the window long enough to cook.

- If you know where every air vent in the house is located...not because the air conditioning blows out of them, but because the heat does.

- If you can't believe no one in this town knows what queso is.

- If you've had to defend the legitimacy of the phrases "all y'all" * and "y'all'll" **.

- If your camera has more pictures of deer/fall foliage/weather events than the children.

* every single last one of you 
** contraction meaning y'all will
***could be combined ie:  All y'all'll freeze if you try to jump on the trampoline in this weather.

Just wait until you make Queso for everyone and then no one eats it because it is WAY TOO SPICY! :)

I love this post! :)
Even though we lived in MI before, we are experiencing similar things here... we're in sweaters while Michiganders are still in shorts.

The first few sound like me when we moved from Louisiana to Canada! And someone JUST told me about saying the pledge to the Texas flag along with the American one, weird!
