Apparently you have to be LOGGED in to vote. If you are just a visitor to the site, you see the poll RESULTS.

If I had my way, I think I'd like to live in some small town u.s.a, somewhere UP NORTH, maybe 'mid west' or more west.. not back east. And have enough money to live comfortably and maybe run a hardware store or something like that. Living on some nice Ocean Front beach property would be nice too :-) while I'm dreaming.

I really like the "organic" nature of Louisiana. Next to Hawaii, it is one the the more tropical places in the US, and a LOT cheaper to live in. Plus we got possums and armadillos.... what else could you wish for?

COOLER WEATHER! o.k. I'll admit it here for all to hear. I'm a transplanted YANKEE ! Born in New Jersey, conceived in Baton Rouge, LA . Take that for what it's worth

But I have lived in the Shreveport-Bossier area so long, got to calling it home.
And there are certainly things I do like about it. But oh how I long for a real WINTER! And the summers around hear are tough. Yup, give me some small town u.s.a just a little farther up north.

I can't remember the last time it snowed in Shreveport. It used to snow every few years back in the 60's and 70's. I remember one particularly nice snow in 1978. About 8 inches as I recall.

While I'm at it, here is a really cool time lapse video of the Shreveport Bossier Skyline. This mpg file is 3MB in size.

It is not important where we live...

Yes, that timelapse video is pretty cool. What gets me of that panarama of the city.. is how FREAKIN' FLAT everything is. Too bad there aren't any MOUNTAINS on that horizon

Well said Ol' Blue Eye. This is why I enjoy contributing to sites like this. I wish I had more to offer. I'm thinking of creating a podcast or maybe an video animation of some sort. I wish there were more hours in the day to create and share new things.

LOL, bite your tongue! Cell phone service is bad enough around here without moutainous terrain! Oh the other hand, if there were mountains, usually the tops are covered with cell phone antennas perched on top. So maybe I'm wrong, and Cingular would find it easier to "build towers". Oh nevermind, yea some mountains would be nice. I always like the Willow Ridge area on Cross Lake which I guess is a bluff (closest thing we have to a mountain)

Snow in Shreveport

The last time it snowed in Shreveport enough to stick was around New Years 2000-2001.
