    often had short/long assignments there. Sometimes working (but usually 'living' dwtn or out west) in garden spots like Deer Park, Pasadena, Baytown, Clute/Freeport, Texas City, Galena Park (and everywhere else from College Station to Galveston).
    You get used to the smell, like it or not, but the flareoffs were most impressive. Deer Park could light up like a sustained nuclear explosion was in progress (noisy too), since some of the flares are close to town, you can feel the heat too. Texas City is historically signifignant for the massive explosion in the late '40's that nearly destroyed the place. It took out a whole refinery and parts of others, incidentally to the source of it: a ship with hazardous cargo.
