I love the whole Republic of Texas meme, and how this quote shows how Texas weather changing is clearly… bigger than New England’s. Because everything’s bigger in Texas. I can’t help but wonder what other sayings that Texas has.
- A stitch in time saves seventy-two.
- Killing ten birds with one stone.
- The only thing we have to fear is hesitation itself.
