Note the exclamation point in the town's name. Here you'll find the ruminations, rants and raves of one of the town's realtors and residents.

If you live in the Midway Meadows subdivision in Addison, Texas you were in the dark last night.  Electricity flickered on and off for about 5 minutes, starting at approximately 5:50 pm, then went completely off.  When I contacted the TXU "outage" phone line, I was told to expect the power to com...
"I am Addison!"  That's the theme and slogan for the 2009 Addison, Texas calendar.  Town employees delivered the calendars to home owners last week (in the cold and wet, thank you!) and if you didn't receive yours, there are some available at the Addison Athletic Club.
