i just wanted to say thank you for all the people that helped
me with sugestions on moving. I just got back from 2 days
in Baton Rouge. I was able to find a place in Denham Springs
and you were not joking about the traffic! Yikes. Would like
to figure out a alternate to Hwy 12 for sure.
I got scared to death when they had the tornado warnings,
cancelled our whole day of activities. Then it all blew away
Boy, looks like i got some stuff to learn for sure.
Again, thanks for all the help

There are two alternatives - (1) Florida Blvd (Hwy 190), (2) LA 64 north of town. That's it. And since your place of work is off Siegen, LA 64 (also known as the "Magnolia Beach Bridge" is not an option at all.

As to the tornado warnings, the Gulf air wants to dominate from March-November. But there are cold fronts which try to push through. And that's what cause the flooding/winds/tornadic activity.

Wishing you the best in your move to Denham Springs. I have lived here a long time. I like it for the most part except the traffic. I use as many side streets that I can.

Those two storms we had the last week or so are rather freak events. I don't remember ever getting storms like that blowing in so hard and so fast and cause so much damage in a short amount of time. I wouldn't consider it the norm, although we can definitely get rough weather. You should see our summer thunderstorms. They aren't near as rough with the wind and tornadoes but they will dump a torrential amount of rain real quick. Probably because our weather right now is more frontal/continental and in the summer it becomes more subtropical.

Not much you can do with the commute from Denham to Siegen though, unless you work off-hours. Flex your schedule if you can.

Good Luck to you here in Louisiana! Jusr remember, traffic is bad no matter what area in the country you live in-my friends all over the country complain about traffic, so really, it is the same everywhere! I love it here and the only downside is missing my whole family in south Florida! Take care and best to you!
