Metairie to Covington Commute
I currently live and work in Metairie but have a job possibility in Covington.

Anyone make this commute daily? Is it worth it?

It's a good position that I would def take in Metairie. Just don't know how I feel about commuting every day.

Not bad at all especially the direction you go has zero traffic

Well you're going reverse of the traffic. Its just a boring 30min drive though.

Sean Peyton decided to forego it for a 60min flight though

It wouldn't be so bad, you will be the opposite of the really bad traffic.

I live in mandeville and work in Metairie and I leave my house 50 minutes before I am supposed to be working. Not pulling in the garage, but actually working and that involves a parlor garage and two sets of elevators every morning. You'll be going the opposite way of trafiic every day, which would make your commute even easier.

Fog can be a bitch, but it really only ads about 10-15 minutes to your commute.

I go from Mandeville to the CBD every morning/evening. The drive isn't that bad, and your drive is going to be a lot easier/shorter than mine.

I did it for 15 years the opposite way. Had a few "fog" days.

On fog days, i'd like to get out the vehicle and murder the causeway pack patrol leaders.

As for the "better than Vets" it takes me 10 mins to get to work now going down Vets.

I know the actual drive isn't too bad being only 30 mins roughly against traffic. My concern is that right now I can run off if something comes up with my kid at school or if I need to run home for something. How bad does it suck not being able to do any of that any more?

Actually, Hammond is primarily white...probably around 70% white actually. Problem is that I don't know any of them. All the white people I knew and grew up with left after graduating high school or college.

I'm very familiar with Hammond. If it's only 30%, that 30% must hang out in entirety at the hammond mall every saturday.

re: Metairie to Covington Commute
Let me ask this a different way. If you have a job that you are happy at now with a 10 min. drive from your house, how much better would a new job have to be to be willing to put up with a 45 min. commute?
