Beaumont and Port Arthur??? That's crazy b/c the money is good out there if you are an engineer. I guess they figure that the work safety sucks b/c of the Chemical Plants.

You only miserable if you don't have a work ethic B. This is no place to sit around and wait for sh*t to magically become better. Every opportunity in the world in one city if you got the balls and mindset to do it.

Yup. Beaumont sounds about right.
That whole area around I-10 between Houston & Louisiana is depressing as hell.
