  1. Let me understand this. There are 33 ft of clay followed by 37 feet of sand? Which is then followed by 25 feet of clay, 25 feet of sand, and finally 30 feet of clay. Amazing. Here in Houston I thought it was clay to the Earth's core.
  2. Doesn't happen often, but sometimes glass shatters especially when exposed to temperature extremes or some type of vibration.
  3. My uncle and aunt worked at Menningers back in the 60's and early 70's. The west campus with the tower was beautiful. It's all boarded up now. Hope it will be preserved.
  4. According Tropical Tidbits its beginning to look as if Laura is going to be a problem for us, Marco may get clipped by wind shear.
  5. I love La Defense. It is visually pleasing. Glad its where it is. Just wish tour Montpanasse was here instead of it sticking out in the older parts of the city. Paris is a gem of a city. An expensive gem at that.
  6. All my children were in orphanages in Siberia. Our twin daughters were in a pre-WW I building. It was nasty and has been replaced with a new one. Our son from a newer orphange. I don't know what life is like for Americans after they leave the orphanage, but it isn't too bright in Russia. It's a tough country to grow up in. Their GDP is smaller than Texas.
  7. I would have put "Johnny on the Job edifice" for #12 and parking lot as #13, but your list is spot on.
  8. I would also include jermh, who I doubted when first read their post. Thought they were seeing a mirage from the heat.
  9. With construction finally starting on this one, I believe that leaves only two left from the downtown living initiative: Another Camden Conte and a Marquette highrise north of Minute Maid Park. Looking good.
  10. Hope your right Luminare. This project has had so many starts and stops it was feeling like Charlie Brown and Lucy with the football. Too bad about the trees though, but if it goes up it will be a decent addition to the skyline view along I-69.
  11. Maybe the developers have something like Boston's curse of the Bambino or Chicago's curse of the billy goat. The good news, though not an expert on curses or hexes, those two curses had an expiration date. Perhaps this one does also.
  12. It wasn't South Carolina it was West Carolina ( or maybe East Carolina don't remember). And they raised their air tax not gas tax. If any of this makes sense you need help! Haha.
  13. Is this a 38 or 39 stories? I saw 13 missing. I know about the superstition surrounding the number 13. Is this common in many buildings. I guess I never paid attention. Nevermind. Just saw the "PH". Can't imagine that refers to hydrogen cation concentration, so it must be "Penthouse".
