Yes I do realize this is my 3rd "who lives" thread, sorry. But does anyone live between these 2 cities? What would be the highest elevation point you think? I might move and change jobs all in one fell swoop and because of my family might think about this area. But, I'm so afraid of getting into another flooding situation I've got to target the high ground. Because of what I do (design and test software) I might have to work in Beaumont but could drive as far as an hour west of Beaumont. I SERIOUSLY doubt East Houston or West beaumont or anything in between will have any work I can do but it doesn't hurt to hope. edit: I forgot to say that another reason to move to this area is I think the land is a lot cheaper than where I am now so I could probably get more land too. Ahhh it would be so nice to work out of the home and not in an office. I really hate my job by the way but am fortunate to have it.
