True, true and TRUE!!!

Yeah I was in Waco this summer and we went weeks of being in the 100s. Never reached 115 though.

That's definitely not Cypress. Cypress doesn't begin till you get to 290 and Huffmeister. That would be like saying Greenspoint is the Woodlands or that Sharpstown is Sugar Land.

I meant from that area and up it reminded me of Dallas. Jersey Village, and those other places. The only names I know off the top of my head is cypress and jersey village.

Thumbs up Houston & Dallas as next "world cities"

Houston a "World Capital of the Future"
"Last year, Houston and Dallas grew more than any other metropolitan region in the country; over the past decade, their populations have increased six times more rapidly than New York, Los Angeles, Chicago or San Francisco.
But it's not all a demographic game; cities like Phoenix and Las Vegas have similarly enjoyed rapid growth but do not fit on the rising global cities list. The key difference lies in the Texan cities' rising corporate power. Houston, with 27 Fortune 500 firms, has passed Chicago in the number of Fortune 500 companies, while Dallas, with 14, ranks third. Together, the two Texan cities account for about as many Fortune firms as New York, once home to almost a third of the nation's largest companies."
