You Might Be in Southwest Texas if...

You have a windmill pumping water somewhere on your property.

90% of the plants you encounter are armed with barbs.

You know the difference between a butte and a mesa, between an arroyo and a draw.

You drive for 280 miles and pass through only two tiny towns.

Most of the animals you encounter lick their lips and wonder if the human body is really 60% water.

Your closest neighbor lives across the another country.

At every turn, you see vast unspoiled landscapes of beautiful natural scenery.

The biggest local employer is the U.S. Border Patrol.

Target is something to shoot at, not a place to shop.

You're tempted to use a leaf blower to clean the dust off yourself at the end of the day to reduce the  mud flow in the shower.

You have to drive 190 miles round trip to shop at a "real" grocery store.

The nearest Walmart is 200 miles away.

The speed limit is 80 miles per hour... in the school zone.
