Okay, let me re-phrase that...

Having more than 5 days a year where snow can be on the ground bothers me.

Louisiana is pretty cool. I think it's the most fun and cultural out of the bunch. Plus, the food cannot be beat. The Kisatchie National Park swayed me when I was deciding between either Texas or Louisiana, that place is so pretty.

I like all the Southern States. I also like West Virginia although it is was not a Southern State. We are trying to get to all the states, but there has not been a state that we didn't find something that we liked. Every State is beautiful in its own way. I'm proud to be a Tar Heel and that has nothing to do with the school.

I must say that I have enjoyed visiting each and every southern state, but I'm voting for Louisiana, because it's home!

Having never been to Texas, I am curious. Are downtown Houston and Dallas rough areas?
