completely useless info:

I looked on Google maps, and noticed that Houston is somewhere about the same distance from the North Pole as parts of Egypt. 'Naturally Houston be a bit closer to water than desert of central Egypt.

Houston seems to be about 29 1/2 degrees north latitude, close to the Giza Necropolis and the pyramids which are, oh, a bit north of Houston at about 29.6 degrees north, give or take.

I think one of those NE greenies buried a heater on our coastline to attract all the really bad hurricanes. We get all the hot weather and big storms, they're in parkas in July.

Can we turn this thread into a discussion of farts again please? I ate chili for dinner and downed a few Lone Stars last night, and now all I can think about is how hot my passed gas is, not how hot Houston is.

Typically further south is moderated by more tropical weather, further north with colder weather, Houston's latitude should be a desert, but the Gulf of Mexico provides a moderating influence and rain.
Hmm...interesting...well, there is an optimistic spin on it. Yeah, if Egypt is in the same latitude as Houston and the highs almost never reach 100, then I'd say we're doing pretty well.
