  1. Looks like it was torn down in the 1980s, as it is gone by 1989.
  2. I've been to that Discovery Zone on Bellaire, for a birthday party in like 1997 or something. The snow was in February 1993, I remember looking out from a medical building on I-10 east (my father was having his back looked at) and seeing the snow falling. It's still standing.
  3. The airport was named "Howard R. Hughes Airport" from 1938 to 1940; Hughes was responsible for several improvements to the airport, including its first control tower, built in 1938. The airport's name was changed back to Houston Municipal because Hughes was alive at the time and regulations did not allow federal improvement funds to an airport named after a living person. The 1940 terminal building (now a museum) shows "Houston Municipal Airport", so the change was probably made by 1940. I have no idea what the mission was that was transferred to Sweetwater, but Houston Municipal did hold WASP classes in 1943. Houston Municipal became Houston International in 1954 and William P. Hobby Airport in 1967.
  4. Tropical Storm Allison in 1989 (not to be confused with the 2001 storm). I was born just hours after that storm hit.
  5. Does anyone know about the possible tornado that ripped part of the roof off Frazier Elementary on the northwest side in 1997?
  6. It was the Houston Distribution Inc. warehouse off of Market St. in June 1995; it was on the northeast side near Loop 610 and I-10, near the Budweiser plant
  7. I lived in Woodland Trails West from 1989 to 2003. The homes flooded three times: 1998 during TS Frances, 2001 during TS Allison, and in 2002. By 2003 the homes were being demolished. Most are long gone.
