I guess since Texas is my home now is a good place to step in. There are so many different cultures and types of people here it is unreal. I have to actually agree with konquererz in that a lot of the people that live down near San Antonio and a lot of the southern area there are very rude. I personally do not enjoy making trips that far south myself because of it. The farther north that you travel in the state the more souther hospitality you will see. Dallas area is always nice, as is the East Texas area near Tyler and Longview. I live in Texarkana with is the farthest northeast you can get. I pretty well like it near my area. Texarkana for anyone that isn't familiar with it is actually a city that spans state lines with Arkansas. So there is one physical city of Texarkana, but two states share it. It is very weird if you have never been here. You will also notice if you travel west of Dallas on the interstate you will see what looks like a wall of rock that goes strait up. This is the caprock that actually starts the "Great planes". You see it on your way, and you can look back and tell after you went up, but you never really notice driving uphill. It is so freaky but beautiful.
This is major devistation compared to what anyone in the area is ever prepared for. Edited: bwren on 28th Dec, 2005 - 10:26pm
