Early Sunday Morning Weather in Houston at Memorial Park, WOW, Rice Military, and Zip Code 77007

Sunday morning, 7:29 AM–Despite the early hour and the late hour of going to bed, but because of the beautiful, cool morning–74 degrees, feels even less–Annie and I took a longer walk than usual back a few blocks into the Rice Military area (south of Washington, east of Westcott). It’s a terrific morning for a walk, nice air, a little dew on the grass, and the sun not high enough yet to start heating things up.

Although everyone is claiming the Houston real estate market is still good, it appears a little different from street level observation. I hadn’t walked back in that direction for quite some time. The older, little one-story houses, which a few months ago had signs in front promoting new building on the lot, look clean and lived in once again, but now without the signs. On the other hand, more and more of the townhomes, which have been built back on those streets in recent years, do have for sale signs in front.

Making our round back home via Washington, I noticed two bums. (Yes, how did we get so euphemistic, by grouping all of these people together and calling them homeless? Being homeless is when someone has been forced out of their home by some disaster or economic reasons. People who won’t work, just want to stay dirty, break into neighborhood cars, and beg for money in front of convenience stores are bums–plain and simple. Sorry for the left turn in my train of thought.)

What was really nice to hear were the roosters crowing from Wabash Feed Store. It’s one of those places that gives the neighborhood life and character, despite all the so-called gentrification going on.

Have a wonderful Sunday! Here’s the local forecast from NWS:

Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 89. East wind around 5 mph becoming south. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
