We had known about it, we had prepared for it, and of course, we worried about it. The artic blast has come and gone in Texas, and well, even with expectations, the cold certainly made us shiver.

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.
