As I posted on a previous thread, the boyfriend and I are preparing to make the move next month. But we're really worried about how the oil spill will make finding jobs even harder than we were anticipating. Especially since he's a sushi chef...

I would post pone any move untill you see how the economy will be effected by this oil spill I think the hardest hit will be the restaraunts and the hotel /'motel industry etc ... I would definately not move , because some of the effects will not be cleared up for yrs to come . Just saying my two cents worth .

Looks like tourism will be down. Saw a lot of news stories about it yesterday. But really, I think the economy has the tourism down anyway. I see a lot of resorts on the Gulf Coast taking advantage of the situation and will bill BP for lost income when really the state of the economy has tourism down anyway. We'll see.

But I wouldn't move to the Gulf Coast until this is all settled -maybe will take years.

I wonder if there will be some people coming just to see what the oil spill looks like, but with all of these health effects and whatnot probably not too many, certainly not enough to make up for the lost tourism from the economy/spill.

It's still too early to tell. We have not had anything down this way yet and all the people that are avoiding Mississippi, Louisiana and The Panhandle could push down this way. Still a risky move at this time though.

I am going on a trip to the Keys for a few days this coming week just to avoid any possible oil on the beaches later on. Of course, want to miss the hurricanes, too, so this coming week looks like a good time to go.

Gulf Coast Oil Disaster: Interactive map


Looks like we're safe, for now. But the size of the spill may double by the time they cap this Fall.

Sometimes I do get things right.
