The biggest one for is how they go overboard in climate controlling.

You Know you are a Houstonian when in September it drops to 80 degrees and you crank up the heat to 95 and when February rolls in and it gets up to 70 we chill it back to 60

somehow 80 is too cold in september but 70 is too hot in february. we love our heating and cooling capabilities too much in Houston

I can't believe that there are people in other parts of the country who don't know what kolaches are! I remember when Sabila Vargas first came to Houston from L.A. to work for Fox 26, one of the other anchors mention something about going to get kolaches for breakfeast and she had a dumbfounded look on her face and she asked "what is a kolache". I though she was joking, she was dead serious. She really never herd of a Kolache.

I like the one that says you know your a real Houstonian when you can eat migas for breakfest, Pho for lunch, and chicken fried steak for dinner. Damn, now I'm hungry.
