    Baytown is your run-of-the-mill east Houston suburb, which means it's loaded down with oil refineries and allied industries. But it's also a straight shot down TX 146 to Kemah, which is a cool little resort area.

    As you'd imagine, the high school football in the area is excellent. Baytown Lee is a powerhouse, having churned out a slew of top-flight Division I QBs in recent years -- Clint Stoerner, Drew Tate and Brian Johnson (Utah) among them.

    Kemah got whalloped pretty good by Ike. Should be all the way back by now.

    Baytown is sort of a rough place as Steak said. The West Houston suburbs -- Katy, Sugarland, Tomball, are more idyllic. But I would suspect Baytown is cheap and there are some nice areas in places like Mont Belvieu, an adjoining town. Baytown is big enough where while it's a suburb of Houston, one might call Mont Belvieu a suburb of Baytown.

    Having worked there at my first gig, 1980 until summer of '82, I can tell you the refinery smell NEVER leaves.

    Jesus is right. Though it's not as bad these days as it was in the 80s.
    And nowhere close to that bad whiff of wind you can catch on a bad day in Lubbock or Amarillo.

    Come, come, now. Organic is always preferable to chemical.

    I can also attest that Kemah is a pretty cool little village.

    Passed through there last month on my way to my parents' house, and you can't even tell anything had happened there. Kids took a day trip to Moody Gardens while we were there, and they said Galveston is pretty much fully back as well.
