1. We’re used to hot weather
When it gets below 80-ish degrees, us Texans get chilly. We spend the majority of our year sweating and avoiding the sun, so when cold weather comes along, we freak out.
2. We don’t own a lot of winter clothing
We may own some shirts with long sleeves and a jacket or two, but really, we are totally unprepared when it comes to COLD weather. When we step outside with the few layers we can scrounge together, all we think about is how cold we are and how ready we are for it to be summer again.
3. We forget how to drive
4. It takes too long for cars to warm up
5. We’re not good at getting ice off our cars
continue after the break....
6…We don’t have proper tools
We are completely unprepared to face the challenges that freezing weather brings us. Even if we wanted to scrape the ice off our windshield we wouldn't have the tools to do it.
7. Texas is a red state (Literally)
I’m not talking about politics either. We’re used to warm weather this time of year. Heck, last year I bought my Christmas tree while wearing shorts. Seeing our state turn blue in December is not a sight I normally enjoy seeing.
9. Northerners brag about how much colder it is up there
We don’t care if it is 30 degrees colder in Canada or Oklahoma for that matter. We’re not used to the cold. 40 degrees might as well be -100 degrees. If it’s below 80, we don’t like it. Stop telling us about how much colder it is where you live. We’ll just return the favor when it gets to be 90 degrees in your city and you think that’s “hot”.
10. Literally every Texan complains about the cold
The worst thing about freezing weather in Texas is that ALL Texans complain about it simultaneously. On Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and every other online place imaginable, Texans post about the temperature and how they’re coping. After day one, it gets old and may be worse to live through than the cold itself.
Lmao..but seriously the weather is below freezing right now.
