First off I have lived in different parts of the U.S and I have never been happier than living here. First and foremost you are incorrect about the homeowners insurance in general. You state that "there aren't many insurers who will sell HO insurance below I-10 or thereabouts." I live 10 miles south of the interstate and have no problems with acquiring insurance. However, I will say that if you choose to live in a flood prone area, then you will have to pay higher premiums and be required to have flood insurance if financing a home. Most flood prone areas are near lakes, rivers and low lying areas.

How can you state that this area is a natural disaster area? Broussard is far enough from the Gulf of Mexico to not be in line for direct hits from hurricanes. We are not prone to earthquakes, tornadoes, droughts, etc.

You indicated that the tax rate is high here. The tax rate in Broussard is 9 %, however we do get a break in other areas. We have $75,000 deduction on our homeowners tax, in addition to other breaks.

There is no other place in the United States that has a more welcoming and warm community. The culture, food and events are second to none. There is a sense of pride that this area takes in family and community. So before you tear down this area, perhaps you should do a little more homework!!!
This is the funniest thing I've read in a long time.
