We drove through Houston yesterday to go look at some things that we are interested in. Yep, we drove right through the middle of town. Went down I-45 to where it intersected with 59 and took 59 on south past Beltway 8. We returned via the same route. Now, I know better than to take that route at certain times of the day, but we guessed correctly and got through without much traffic or any holdup both going down and coming back. Every year or so I need to drive through Houston just to verify that I live in a better, quieter, and slower paced place out here in what used to be country (grin).
Here are a couple of pictures that my wife took as we drove through down town on our way back home:
I have to admit that Houston has things that we don’t up here in Cut and Shoot. It has some of the best hospitals and doctors, business and industry of all kinds, and almost anything you want to purchase. It also has a lot of people and traffic and noise. Living where I do gives me the benefits of country life but close enough to the big city for things that I can’t find in the country.
BTW, a strong cold front came through here about 02:00 this morning. It is going to be really cold over this coming night. May even bump freezing by early Friday morning. Wow, from the 80’s yesterday to winter today. That’s Texas for ya.
You all have a great day now, you hear?
