less than a mile. I could walk to work but the weather here sucks so it's a 5 minute commute for me.

Not really. I live Uptown so the roads are highly congested and the drivers are crazy. The few times I do walk I almost get run over by cars. I would have to cross the busiest intersection in Houston (Post Oak Blvd and Westheimer Road). If they ever decide build a pedestrian bridge or tunnel at that intersection I will be glad to walk on a nice day.

It's not about the distance, its about Houston being a very unfriendly pedestrian city. The crosswalk lights last only a few seconds and cars are usually making turns when it says to walk and thus they are worthless.

Freakin' school-year-TheWereRabbit, you suck. My commute is 8 miles (Winchester, MA -> Boston, MA via walking and train) but I usually end up walking a few more miles while at work.
