That is correct.

We do have high rises though.

Yeah, that's the way it is here. Flat. The only elevation change is negative in the bayous.

We have hills, but nothing worth mentioning really.

If I remember correctly you're in San Marcos which is close to New Braunfels, Gruene and Canyon Lake. Nice area around there.

Is there still a sign at Canyon Lake that says "Stop and see our dam. Speed and see our damn judge"? I have an ex-girlfriend that owns a house in Greune just down the street from the dance hall. Greune Dance Hall, oldest dance hall in Texas. We use to sit outside and listen to the music. If you were lucky Willie Nelson might show up.
