Just had a ridiculously low flyover by a military jet at 11:35pm on Saturday Night 9/26/09. I'm easily 5 miles away from Ellington to the west. I've been here a year and have never heard them. It sounded like a freight train was in my living room!

You should have been around when they were ferrying (evacuating) all the sick folks from New Orleans right after Katrina. The helicopters going into Ellington were all flying very low and therre were at least 2-3/hour. Those dual bladed choppers can be very, very loud and all of them can really rattle windows.

It's really not frequent enough to be considered bothersome.

Is it true that you pay more in taxes because Clear Lake was annexed by Houston?

No - annexation made no difference tax-wise. What you do pay more for is homeowners insurance IF you live within 1 mile of any body of water.

by the way- this is a very old post so you might not get too any responses.

It was annexed roughly 30 years ago and I'd say lower than *most* incorporated suburbs. It's been a steady 2.9%. CCISD tax is half of that.
