I've seen it called East Texas AND West Texas now. How about North Central Texas, since that's what the North Central Texas Council of Governments calls it? ;)

And yes, many prayers for those affected.

We can't be East Texas. I wouldn't consider marrying my sister.

I think of East Texas as the region of oak and pine forests east of the blackland prairie.

Please my prayers.... it was horrendous to only hear about it. I can’t imagine the absolute horror of living through it..

We lived in the DFW area for many years, and I remember the frequent warnings every spring, but none ever hit new us. Strangely, here in the Austin area, a tornado warning is very rare.

Texas Highways magazine calls the tornado area Prairies and Lakes.

Prayers for all.

Try to find the old song, “All my Exes are from Texas”. It was the genre we used to call “Hillbilly Music” back in the day.

I found it—sung by George Strait:

Bad title as far as location. North Central is more like it.

Prayers for the affected Texans. We didn’t even have thunder here.

I know. That was from my West Texas newspaper. Everything is east of us! :)

Been informed by some people in Austin that geographically central Texas is not central Texas. Only Austin can be called Central Texas. Even though it is located in southeastern Texas. And north eastern Texas is only called North Texas. So basically, everything is centered around Austin and the Liberals. Gee, what a shock.

Thank you, Conor. I’m sure they are heartbroken...and just plain broken.

...and there was more bad weather in that area today. :(
