Sorry ya'll didn't get any snow we still have January and February to go thru. Ya'll are not the redheaded step children of Louisiana or Texas, as I said every City and town in this state has its own uniqueness about them.

I acutually enjoy my visits to your area of the state Its a good day trip or weekend to get away from south Louisiana and experience what the whole state has to offer.

Out of all the East Bank River Road communities, I would have to cast my vote for LaPlace. The population is about 27,500. However, public schools in St. John Parish are really nothing to brag about. The schools are substantially better in neighboring St. Charles Parish, which includes the communities of Destrehan and Luling (which is on west bank, but right next to the Interstate 310 Bridge) among others. Ascension Parish has a good school system, but overcrowding has become a problem in recent years as infrastructure cannot keep up with the population growth there.

Thanks all for your input!! I'm going to take the next few days to do my homework and I'll post again. Welding jobs are the most important, second is schools/neighborhoods for our family, finally is baking or greenhouse jobs for me. I also have 3 seasons experience working as receptionist in tax office, so my employment is easier than hubby's. As I said, I'll do my homework and get back to you, you have all been so very helpful. Thanks!!

We're currently enjoying 40 degree weather, mind you it's only supposed to last 2 days but still, nearly balmy for us this time of year. Haven't had a lot of time for that homework I mentioned, currently working 2 jobs for a total of around 70 hours a week, hopefully I'll get a little time to do some checking soon.
Spent a couple of breaks outside today in short sleeves, and you need to understand that in SD, if it gets above 38 degrees we wear shorts. Would love to experience winter in your neck of the woods.

Default Hot Hot Hot!

Just to show that it sometimes gets too hot here in the winter, it was 80 here today and I'm sunburnt from a great weekend outdoors. I actually saw online where it got to 91 today in Boothville which is down near the mouth of the river. I didn't believe it until I saw on a separate website that it was 89 there yesterday. Now that's a little too warm for this time of year.

IMO, nothing's too warm for February
Not too bad here today but windy, so chilly but sunny - we'll take it
