Good Place to Live Posted On: 12/16/2007 9:33:02 AM
Let me start by saying every place has it's warts and Katy is no different -so if you have a mindset of finding utopia, well, Katy and 99.9% of the world will not fufill your criteria.
Having said that, Katy is a very nice place to live - affordable housing, a very good school district and constant growth are just a few of the positives.
Katy is a suburb of Houston, so you can enjoy the 4th largest city in America and still live in a much smaller community.
As far as crime, traffic and the weather, well that depends on your mindset, after all we are not living in the 1950's so crime is a fact of life, though here it is less than within the city of Houston. Traffic is a bear but if you are resourceful you can find a way to beat sitting in traffic by using the bus park and ride system, carpool which allows the use of the high occupancy lane or move closer to your job.
The weathere here? can be brutal in the summer no doubt, consistently in the 90's - rarely are the temps in the 100's as an earlier poster referenced, humidity is too high to allow for a consistent 100+ degree period. The humidity is tough - 90% is common in the summer but we are only 90 miles from the Gulf of Mexico so you do the math. Our summers last as long as the winters in the northeast but the upside is that our winters last as long as the summers in the northeast thus, temps rarely go below freezing and you can forget snow, sleet etc. which may occur once every 8 to 10 years.
So, there you go not comprehensive but do keep in mind that it always comes down to your mindset - are you willing to accept some flaws and see the positives? or are you only satisfied when everything lines up with your idea of perfect?
