  3. I always have a great time when I am Houston, except for the darn heat and humidity.....suffocating!!
    But then again, Texans think that us Canadians are nuts to deal with what winter has in store for us each year :eek:

    It's probably this humidity that keeps me young...it's adds moisture to my face! Hahaha!

    But you're right Houston is hot...and we don't have winters...well...I mean we do...but it last all of 2 weeks and we're back into Spring. :biggrin:

    I think he's attempting to spell that who-wahhhhhh sound that Pacino makes in that movie where he's blind. :)

    I thought Atlanta's humidity was stinking rotten until I went to my father's wedding in Houston in August. I thought my uncle, who had never been south of the Mason Dixon line, was going to have a heat stroke in his tux and spill his frozen marguerita.

    I guess I just don't feel it anymore. I love our weather. After September the weather get's better and will become Spring again...although the calendar says Fall. In December...like the end of December through the middle of January it's winter. In February it's Spring again! In May it's Summer! So no real winter here.

    Just remember the humidity keeps you face looing young. :biggrin:

  9. I spent a summer week in Houston years ago....I must admit the heat/humidity is not for me. The Houston Museum of Science was really enjoyable.

    We were on the campus at Rice and the cockroaches were really bad - not sure if it was a bad summer or if it's like that all the time, but it renewed my appreciation for the drier, high-alititude climate of the Rockies.

    My GF is from Houston and she's always buying this expensive face moisturizer that she never needed in Houston, especially in the winter. Funny how much a couple of hours north from that area can make such a difference in the climate.
    I like visiting Houston, but I LOVE coming home to Austin. Can't argue with the better opportunities for pay in Houston though.

    Roaches...ewwwwwwww. Roaches are not a problem for us thanks goodness. We do have fire-ants tho.

    I did Colorado last year and whoa baby...my nose bled..:eek:.I was freaking out. Then my forehead started drying out, :eek::eek:then around my nose was chapping. :eek::eek::eek:Needless to say...my skin did not like the dry climate.

    We're heading into the hurricane season...that's not what I'm looking forward to. This is what happens when you live close to the GUlf of Mexico.

    But not very many places you can buy a big house for not a lot of money. My brother just bought a beautiful 4500 square foot home for $300,000 - of course that's in the burbs - not in the city.

    That's funny ... yes live here in Houston for a month...and you're face is self moisturized!

    I must admit that I love Austin...Austin is probably the most beautiful city in Texas. I hope to live there in about 5 years or so. I want to live in Westlake.

    I think that is great news!

    I live north of town near The Woodlands.
    I believe Houston is a great town but often overlooked.
    There is a lot of world class things to do here.
    Most people don't realize we are the 4th largest city.

    I'm happy we have had a very mild summer this year.
    Summer can be miserably hot and humid if you work outside in it everyday. I consider winter more of a series of cold fronts than a true winter.

    You are so right...Houston is a great place to live...and it is overlooked. As I mentioend above the amount of home you can get for the money is just awesome. I think you are also right about the summer...it didn't get as hot as previous years...I think the hotest it got was a 100. Winters are cool fronts - last year I don't think we hit freezing...although you're north of me so the weather can be slightly cooler and you probably have more frost than we do.

    The Woodlands is a beautiful area. I love the trees over there.
