This got delayed a week on the Houston PBS station and is airing this Saturday, Jan. 13.

Now half of the Lone Star State is freezing!

We have The Weather Channel on in our workplace all the time, and they've changed the camera they take to show an image of Houston whenever they refer to anything happening.

 

They used to pick up Channel 2's tower cam along 59 pointed toward uptown, but now they're using a (IMO) better shot from TSU. Based on the location, I think it's on top of the student center, overlooking the campus with downtown in the background. Looks great today.

I was rewatching some E3 trailers, and I noticed around 1:09 in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator trailer, you can actually see Minute Maid Park and the convention center. It appears only around a second, but it's definitely Houston.

We still have the Weather Channel on in our workplace, but I've noticed another camera in use that they tend to pull from as of late. It is located Uptown, I think on the Sonesta at 610 near Westheimer. While I like seeing the Williams Tower at times as a reminder of home, there are definitely better vantage points of the city than toward that stretch of Post Oak.

How's that going lately ?

Saw a rap album cover with the Four Leaf Towers in the background.  Didn’t think to post it here.  Need to see how the music sounds :ph34r:

probably like fingernails scratching blackboards while you're in the back seat of a rear-engined airplane and a baby is next to you crying... Put it all inside of a cement mixer and that's what Beyonce sounds like to me... lol

All the media are setting up for the Democratic Debate on Thursday at TSU. A worker showed me a pic of the stage and a illuminated floor.

Ad for Lime I received via email (I use them in Austin). Downtown in the background even though scooters have not yet launched in Houston.
