Re: Talk about not giving a Damn Yep, the Galleria is correct. The named escaped me for some reason. I'd never been, even in the 2 years I lived in Spring. Not sure why to be honest. I just always hung around Willowbrook Movie Tavern / Spring. There use to be a sweet arcade in Spring too. I believe it was on FM 1960 if I recall. All you could eat pizza and games for 10 dollars. My brother and I lived there and would go quite a bit before it shut down. I moved away from Houston while he's still there.
Made it out to NASA once, Museum Downtown, that Japanese Garden Downtown, and some other stuff here and there. Also Old Towne Spring as well.
Oddly enough, I've probably explored more of the U.S. than I did Houston itself LOL.
None the less, I do miss the weather the most. 3 Inches of snow today and single teens. Fun times.
Funny enough, Emerald Cove went in 3 stages. Front half never lost power or hot water. My half lost power a day or 2. However, no hot water for a month! The back of the apartments were without power a month and their grid controlled the hot water heater for the middle and back. Taking cold showers for a month was NO FUN!!!!
A friend lived in the section affected by the 30 days of no power. Had I been there, I'd of either gotten a generator or gone back home for a month up North..
All I can say is Spring got nailed and nailed good during Ike. Branches everywhere created a headache. A tree fell through a car where I lived.
