About the Photo

This photograph was taken in July 2007. You probably wouldn’t want to visit Houston, Texas in the middle of summer. You can look up some of our record-breaking temperatures on Wikipedia. This picture was snapped in one of our old apartments, the one that got a little bit of water during Hurricane Ike. In the background is a poster with a bunny playing a guitar. The caption says, "wow your music sucks hard."
