When I moved to Texas 19 years ago from the midwest, I was told "Everything's bigger in Texas!" I found that was true about things I didn't want to be bigger. Down here there's a bug that's called a Palmetto bug---it's a darned cockroach and it's big enough to hitch a wagon to and take to town. Over 2 inches long and they fly! They don't bother coming in the house unless my husband is out of town. I once chased one from room to room with a can of aerosol hairspray because I couldn't find the bug spray. Thank the good Lord for the big hair of the late 80's or I'd still be chasing the creepy thing.
Three of the 10 largest cities in the U.S. are also located in Texas. We lived in one for three years and couldn't wait to get away from it. Too many people, too much crime.
Storms can be bigger too. Heck, we have hurricanes to go with our tornadoes AND no basements to hide in. I was horrified to discover that when tornadoes come, you just have to find "a room indoors with no exterior walls or windows". That would leave us hiding in the powder room with five people, two dogs, a cat and a rat. A little close, to say the least. Close and scared. It's either that or "find a low lying area, preferably a ditch, and lie down". Yea, that'll happen.
We also have something wonderful that is bigger, or seems so---the sky. I had heard that it was bigger and thought it was a bunch of hooey, but it is bigger, it really is! It takes my breath away. It makes me believe in God. It brings me joy.
