    Awesome. I love the curving lines of the highways, I usually think they look ugly but this managed to make them look great!

    @frankienose - you are correct. When i first moved to Houston I was surprised at the beauty of the sunsets. My first thought was "I haven't even seen anything this beautiful in the mountains of New Mexico!" And then someone told me why.

    In Houston most of the chemical and manufacturing plants are on the far East and South East sides. Which is why the affluent live West or North. Which also explains our notoriously long commute times given this is the Energy Capital of the World. I don't have a good solution.
