Used to be - I don't know about now - but the place that Texans went to ski was Colorado. Coloradans had a bumper sticker: If God Wanted Texans To Ski, He'd Have Made Bull**** White.
Liking snow doesn't make a person a Yankee, by the way. I could live in New England my whole life and not wind up a Yankee, same way I could live in France and not wind up French. Liking snow makes you "cold blooded". Liking heat makes you "hot blooded". Liking the weather in Houston makes you a "tropical lizard."
And, all the time, I'm meeting people (in the company of my spouse) and they say "Where are you from?" and he tells them "Massachusetts", which is a BLACK LIE for BOTH of us. HE is from New York City, the Bronx, in particular. So when he rolls that rubbish out, I cut in with "We LIVE in Massachusetts, but he's from New York, and I'm from Texas." Who the heck gets confused between where you live right now, and where you are from?!?!
