How do you like living in Houston?
Luckily, my wife has been here for a bit and knows the drill (she was here for Rita). We are north of the city and off the flood plain so fairly safe here but you never can rule anything out.
So far I like it here. I'm one of the crazy people who like the heat/humidity of the area. Also the area has plenty to keep one busy.
