That is what they are there for. The help with flooding. Without them, your house may flood everytime there is a hard rain.

You can argue with this.

Thanks....appreciate your honesty. How often and how hard does it rain?
I figure if you live within the Loop 160 you wouldn't need to worry about public transportation...am I understanding this correctly?

Not with me. It's not up for discussion. I've already made my decision, lol. I've been around and there's nothing like down here.

Here's something that's been on my mind that I wanted to ask you guys. Houston has low housing prices and affordable apartments. I consider having a "roof over your head" to be top priority but how about everything else in Houston since we're talking "living"

Entertainment costs?
Food/Grocery costs?
Utilities?

My guess is if the housing prices are low then everything else would follow suit. Am I wrong or dead on?
P.S. Can someone answer my question about the rain?

I am sure there is more than a few here not built for that purpose, but to attract richer folks who would like to have water in their backyard. And they should called it what it is. Not lakes.
