"Loo zee anna" What do you think of the state of Louisiana?

What are some of your first thoughts when you hear the state mentioned or see something about it? What are some of your first assumptions when you think of Louisiana people. What do you know about Louisiana culture?
For those who don’t know: No, we aren’t popular for country music. There’s actually nothing "country" about us, unless it is some of the people who’ve moved in from the neighboring states. 🙂 Even the movies get our accents wrong. =)

As for Katrina, I know no one "mooching" off of the government from it. Trailers were given to residents after Katrina b/c they had no other place to go. *IF* the government actually gets these back they get destroyed, not even used for scraps. Whether someone lives in a Fema Trailer or not is there own business. And for some people, moving on is easier said than done.

But some people just won’t be able to understand unless they go through something similar – which I hope none of you have to do.

I think of it as a laid back, fun loving State.

How many hours does it take to travel by bus from Baton Rouge (Louisiana) to New York?


According to http://www.greyhound.com/home/ it takes about 32 hours. The round-trip fare is about $350.

Note that you can fly round-trip from New Orleans to New York/La Guardia for about $300 or from Baton Rouge to Newark for about $425.(including taxes & fees). Flying takes about 3 hours if it’s a non-stop flight, and 5 to 6 hours of traveling if you have to change planes somewhere.

will it be okay to travel with my bird from california to louisiana by uhaul truck.?


If your bird loves and trust you he should be fine. Make sure the bird can see you but try to sheild him from looking out the window. There will be stress. We take our birds riding with us so they are use to everything around the moves in a car. Truck is louder.
Take him on trial runs in your car first. Might help

I find Louisiana is. Not as hot as Flordia in the summer and very few freezing nights in the winter.?

Great hospitals, plenty of outdoor sports, no traffic and our taxes are not bad.

Louisiana is the new Florida. Haven’t been in NO in about two years, but stats show population growing by leaps and bounds. Rest of state is likely going to have a boom in the next decade.

As to reason for better weather, it is in the middle of the Gulf Stream and gets a lot of heat in the winter from that stream passing by it. In the summer, winds move moisture to north into central and southern US.

Gulf Stream heats southern US and Florida, as well as East Coast and Nova Scotia and then heats northern Europe so it is inhabitable all year round.

Not the place to be in hurricane, but that is not a deterrent to most who live or settle there. Culture is fantastic. Perfect mix of people if you like to meet and know new people. Very friendly too.

Hope the climate info helps and the personal observations didn’t hinder.
