Thought I'd share my experience and perspective for what it's worth. We moved here about 5 1/2 years ago from Illinois. We're not LDS but are members of a local evangelical Christian church. All of our neighbors know this and we have a mutual respect for each other. We have nothing but good to say about the people here, including the LDS. Many of our friends are active LDS members and we hang out, watch sports, go to dinner etc. Some of them have visited our church and we've been to special events for them - baptisms, scouts, etc. I think that's what good friends and neighbors do.

There have been only a few times when we felt excluded. But, that also happened with other friends and before we moved here. Just a part of life. No biggie. I don't feel our kids have been hindered in sports because their not LDS either. I'm sure it maybe happens, just didn't happen to us. Perhaps we've just been very fortunate - and I'll take that.

We love it here, so much so that when my employer recalled all of their teleworkers, I decided to part ways with them so we could stay here in St George. We had no less than a half dozen LDS friends and neighbors go out of their way to help me find alternative employment - arranging meetings, networking connections, offering opportunities. Quite frankly, they were so concerned with helping us stay here in southwest Utah, it was really touching. We're nothing special, just regular people, but they made us feel cared for. I love and appreciate every one of them for that. So, perhaps it just depends on your specific situation.

I will confirm that the driver situation described isn't an exaggeration. Some pretty bad drivers, but if you think about it, you have families with a lot of kids in activities racing around town. Throw in about half the drivers of retirement age enjoying the scenery like every day is a Sunday drive and it's a recipe for accidents. Drive defensively my friends.

Skeddy - depends on what you mean by warm. The winter here averages around 55-65 for the high. No wind and full sun mean it usually feels much warmer. You will be surprised how warm the sun is here (makes it feel 10-15 degrees warmer). If there's no sun, all bets are off. March is typically very nice - mid to upper 60's on average. Perfect hiking/biking weather...maybe not so good swimming at Sand Hollow weather. But one of my favorite months weather wise.

There is a large FLDS community in southern Utah. The women dress distinctively, in a style reminiscent of the 1890's. A major branch used to be based mainly in Hilldale/ Cororado City and do their shopping in St. George, so they could be encountered very frequently in some public places. Recently, groups have been moving into town, and to Cedar City where I live. We say hello to them and they say hello back. I do see them on almost a daily basis. They are part of the community at this point and not isolated in their own communities like they once were. I encounter them so frequently that I don't really think about it. I can provide links to articles referencing the move into town after the FLDS conflicts with the state managers of their Hilldale properties (EDIT: http://archive.sltrib.com/article.ph...94&itype=CMSID ). Some even live on my street now.

I heard that Marie Osmond lives in St. George. Is this true? Anyone see her out shopping?
