I'm not an expert on paleogeology, but I'm pretty sure it's been hundreds of millions of years since the last time Texas was covered in water. Certainly longer than humans have been planting crops and worshipping Gaia.
(If I was Nebraska or Wyoming, I would have cut off the water to California and Arizona YEARS ago. Attention Phoenix: No water means God doesn't want you to live there. Go back to Buffalo.)
