Very accurate and well said! I do hope others pay attention to you words.

I'll try to keep this short and simple. I've lived in Houston nearly all my life, and I can't wait to move away. The town has gone downhill; especially in the last 15 years. It's basically a hot, polluted, concrete-filled wasteland teeming with third-world "charm".
But other things never change. The 'summers' are at least 6 months long (May-October), and the weather is nothing but oppressive. Either the days have high humidity, and it feels like living in a steam room, or it is drier, and you have ozone alerts. The only time you can comfortably do anything outside is from Nov. to April. The sheer size of the city is staggering, and it's very difficult and time consuming to get away from the city, and even then, there's very little away from the city that is worthwhile either, other than maybe Galveston.
