    Thought this would be fun to post here, I got it in a email today. And I have heard people say that they thought Louisiana was just "swamp" land but it is not the case.

    Quote:Some party during hurricane season. But I don't think I would do that. Unfortunatley we get more winds from hurricanes here then we use to. Because we have lost the outer land off the coast.
