A reader who goes out dogwalking in Montrose just west of Audubon Place at 5:30 every morning is hoping other Swamplot readers can help figure out out if there’s any particular reason why the lights on top of the Wells Fargo Plaza building at 1000 Louisiana recently began broadcasting in color:
During the drought, that is, all summer, there was a string of lights on top of the tower were always white. Then, [2 weeks ago], they went pink! Or maybe red. It was hard to say.
[One day last week,] they were all white, except for one small red section. [Then 2 days later,] they were red when I first saw them, but then they flashed to the white with a red dot configuration.
At first, I thought they were trying to offer a weather forecast. (If I remember correctly, one of the old buildings downtown did this with colored lights about 30 years ago) But now I am a bit flummoxed . . . .
NOW the light are changing almost every morning. The last two morning they started off as a deep solid red, then switched to a white with red dots at about 5:40 AM.
I can’t find a reason for the colors.
