Here are some facts about Texas you may or may not know.
Population is around 26 million people. East Texas average annual rainfall is 56-inches, while West Texas receives only about 8-inches. 70% of the people in Texas live within 200-miles of Austin. 4.1 million people live in Harris County alone. There are almost 24-thousand ranches in the Lone Star State. 10% of Texas in covered by forest and the state flower in the Bluebonnet. The largest animal is the Longhorn and the state dish is chili.
I love everything about Texas and have lived nowhere else in my 5-decades of life on this Earth. Here's another interesting fact. From El Paso, it is closer to Needles California than it is to the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. It is almost 1000-miles from the eastern boarder of Texas to El Paso and a little bit further from Brownsville to Texline. The Texas state official mammal is the Armadillo, if you can find one that is not lying dead on the side of the road.
