What makes Texas unique? Some fun facts!

Since moving to Texas in June 2004, I've noticed that Texans have a sense of PRIDE. I have bought into this pride as well. It's easy to do!

Recently I looked up What Makes Texas Unique and found some very interesting tidbits of information that I thought I would share.

Texas is the only state to have the flags of 6 different nations fly over it - Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederate States, and the United States.

Texas was an independent nation from 1836 to 1845.

Texas is the only state to enter the United States by treaty instead of territorial annexation.

By treaty, the Texas flag is the only state flag that flies at the same height as the United States flag.

The capitol in Austin opened May 16, 1888. The dome of the building stands sever feet higher than that of the nation's Capitol in Washington, D.C.

The King Ranch in Texas is bigger than the state of Rhode Island.

The first word spoken from the moon on July 20, 1969 was Houston. (the rest of the sentence is not so flattering, but that's not the point of this post)

El Paso is closer to Needles, California than it is to Dallas.

And my FAVORITE fact... On March 27, 1984, the temperature in Brownsville was 106 degrees while Amarillo reported snow and 35 degrees.

Everything is bigger in Texas!

Jeanna - There are a ton more, but I thought these were the most entertaining. Marchel told me that one of the facts is wrong though. :-(   I still believe it.

Cynthia - I knew that was a stretch but.... :-)
