  • I guess it should be bad news, but after these past few years boy am I glad to hear that more people are leaving Houston than coming.

  • This U-Haul news seems counter-intuitive.
    BUT, who moves themselves with a trailer? The lower-income segment.
    We hear how Houston is groing by tons, so, the newbies must be upper-earners, people who clearly do not use U-Haul.
    That was me in 1986 – trailering one-way from Cincinnati. If only I’d realized how precious the trailers were here! Everybody was leaving Houston then.

  • movocelot: But to be fair, that same (u-haul) metric was used to show proof of Houstons growth.
