There are really only two seasons here in Southeast Louisiana, Summer and Winter! The winters are not typically bad, but they are wet and the cold is painful! But they do not stay that way for long! Sometimes we have very mild winters that barely get cold! The Summer months begin here when most people are just starting to thaw out! We can swim from about April until October, most years! There are a lot of severe thunderstorms, though. Sometimes, these include tornados. During Hurricane season we are typically pretty aware! Being located in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico makes for good hurricane entry. But, overall it's okay!
