Recommended Posts

so, i am in Dallas for the first time and in nall likelyhood one of the last times..

its a business trip and all, and my hotel is one side of DT, the office I am working in the other...

this city is pretty damn huge.

its sururban urbanity

totally shocking.. i kind of like it in a way, then as walking across a plaza on a office towers property a car drives by......

wait suburban urbanity.....

so weird

\cant amke the right words but damn, weird

on another subject...............

recession? building freeze?

yeah right. between the 7-11 building annd downtown there were 2 large developments happening. not sure their purpose, but surely improvements are coming. and um, if you like beer, avoid downtown, go to gingerman (6.50 cab)

I know. I drove thu on my way to Wichita Falls and holy smokes. I was blown away especially when I drove north on tx 114. The sheer numbers of houses, office parks that have taller buildings than many medium to large cities and then the freakin interchanges. I called my wife and explained that ATL is pretty big but DFW is another type of suburban/urban big. Mind you I have traveled to several world cities and thoughtout the world so I have been around. And yes I have been to LA before anyone ask. I am just commenting on how I was surprised by what I saw.

Driving through Houston is a similar experience with numerous high rise clusters through out the city as well as intense widespread suburban development.  Defining Dallas as "suburban urbanity" is a pretty good description IMO.

You must be visiting there.  Dallas and Fort Worth posters rarely venture out from their own forums. :)

and yes I was in Fort Worth last night and had to change hotels today in Dallas due the tornado as large power outages continue.  Here is some damage of I-35 E in Dallas.

this was a brand new warehouse building shredded by the F3 tornado.

That was some significant damage.  I saw what appeared to be funnel cloud move over my neighborhood in the southern part of the Austin metro around that time last night.  But fortunately it didn't touch down.

to have a F3 tornado hit heavily populated north Dallas and no one get seriously hurt or dead is blessing.  The damage footage on local news is unbelievable.  A Home Depot store front fell into the store after the roof blew off and now the entire store will be bulldozed and rebuilt.  https://www.dallasnews.com/business/retail/2019/10/21/home-depot-and-central-market-among-stores-severely-damaged-by-dallas-tornado/

Not to mention all the homes destroyed in the path along with several schools closed indefinitely.
