That is less than a mile from where we live in Ponderosa Forest.
I can literally walk there without breaking a sweat.
Been here since 2000.
It's a small world indeed although I wouldn't want to have to mow it.
Small world indeed. I guess you remember Hurricane Ike Hitting Spring, too. The big tree down on Kuykendahl Rd. The huge Lamp Post sitting toppled on Kuykendahl and Louetta near the Krogers. That one guy on the billboard missing his arm for ages LOL. First Hurricane I'd seen. I laughed about Houston panicking when it was 34 and "flurries", though you had me beat on the Hurricane part.
As I said, I loved the summers and winters. Moved away back to Ohio (originally from) in 2010 and now I get to enjoy the chilly temps. Everyone thinks I'm nuts here when I keep my heat cranked to 77.
Last time I was down in Houston was this past summer. Funny enough, this visit I went to the mall with the skating rink. Forgetting name right now. I'd never been there before even when I lived in Houston.
Ike was no fun at all. A Week without power. Branches punched holes in my mom's mobile home. Bleh.
That Mall might be the Galleria. That's the only place I have skated here and it was back in the '70s before I moved back to Pgh.
