We're moving to the area and need to be within 30ish minutes of Cypress, so I'm looking at Hockley, Prairie View, Monaville, Magnolia to rent at first. We like to live rural. Firstly, did these areas flood in Harvey, and secondly, what is the commute like into Cypress, and also is Cypress a place you can get office jobs in? We're hoping to not move to an area with insane traffic at rush hour like where we are now (going into Tampa.)

So you don't have any solid job offer from Cypress yet, but you are projecting all your future career only around this town, right?

Prairie View is 15 minutes from Cypress (Fairfield area). Some areas flooded in PV but most held up as the ground is slighter higher than normal Houston.

Monaville is at "least" 25 to 30 as its off the beaten path and along a major highway. Magnolia is a vast area but the actual city of Magnolia is off 249 and it would be about 30 minutes but it depends where at in Cypress.

We don't know this for sure. Perhaps husband already has a job and the OP is wife asking about jobs so she won't be home bored.

Is the drive in from these areas busy with crazy backed up traffic, or is it a decent commute? I'm trying to see if it's like where we live now.

There will be some traffic but not bumper to bumper and the freeway has expanded starting in Waller. No way near big city traffic

Today, the traffic isn't bad. But in Houston, you have to project what it might be like in a few years...and it rarely gets better. Even big freeway expansions often have a pretty limited-term benefit in terms of congestion.

While true you cannot predict the future of traffic on a given freeway, you may also not be able to predict your work location indefinitely. Struggle as you may to purchase a home close to work, only to find yourself working on the other side of town. Job\career changes happen.

Too true. Plus, you might get married to an employed spouse, whose job is not convenient to your current abode. It's very much a moving target.
