Don't worry about it. If you want to represent Phoenix go right ahead.

lol i'm going to google Metairie to see if I should be offended.

but to answer your question. not as much fun as it was a few days ago. all that snow got everyone all worked up and now everything will be back to normal this weekend when we are all wearing shorts again.

i just realized that Houston got hit by Rita (sort of) like a week after Katrina hit New Orleans and then New Orleans gets a hit with snow a day after Houston gets hit by snow. it's a conspiracy!

How are things out that way anyway?

Houston is back to normal but Galveston still has a long way to go. I used to drive down to Bolivar Peninsula at least once a week during the summer to enjoy the beach but I think that area was wiped out.

After Katrina I made a lot of friends from New Orleans. Some of the best people i've ever met.

That's good to hear yet surprising. Most people from Houston that I encounter have some pretty colorful things to say about New Orleanians. But Houston is all right with me, even if it does look like a Giant Metairie lol.

Galveston was nice, I hope to see it come back some day.

Well there are people here that blame the increase in crime on New Orleanians but I think that is just an excuse. When you add that many people to a city all at once of course crime will increase no matter what city they come from . Most people I came in contact with from New Orleans were very nice people who were temporarily going to my university or found a job at the company I work for. Not exactly the types that would increase crime. We had a crime problem in Houston before 2005 just like all cities.
