    Can be blot, then chilly, and the next minute it could be raining. Texas weather is pretty much bipolar.
    Review Blue Mound
    Decent places to eventually apply.
    It is a little bit of a poor neighborhood, but the people tend to live here for a very long time and the police are quite strict on regulating rules.
