Geographically it is in the southern U.S. So, yeah, I guess I consider Tejas apart of the south in that respect. But, if you are asking if I consider it it to be a part of "THE SOUTH", along with Georgia and Alabama and what not, I don't guess I do.

Well this is my expert opinion being from Texas, we are part of the South but we are more South/West/Mexican. We have a different accent from "the south" and have different food from "the south" but we are still kinda southern because we talk slower and are more conservative. I guess Texans (the big headed proud ones, not me) would like to think of ourselves all alone. We are quite big and so it is hard to generalize so I guess my answer is yes and no....that was a long answer.

As a Georgian, Texas is its own region. It is not a part of the "deep south", but some good ol' boys like to way certain flags and think that they are. That is something will never understand.

It looks like you are going to get a lot of the same answer. I agree with Jeri and Houston. Geographically, yes it is in the south. (But who decided Iowa was "mid-west" there is very little west about this place... I digress.)
I think if you are referring to "the south" as in the collection of states and peoples, then no. As Houston said, most of the "South" doesn't not include Texas in their ranks. And Texans do not usually lump themselves in with the rest of the deep south either. So there are my 2 cents.
We're going to be in Colorado June and July so we will have to hang out when your at home. :)

Seriously? ... of course it's the south. Period.

although i enjoyed my 6 years in texas, as a georgian (just like houston) i would define "the south" by those states east of the mississippi river and south of the mason-dixon line.

merry christmas to all, wherever you live.
