This is actually about Cordova, couldn't find it i Posted On: 8/8/2007 12:35:55 PM
I lived in Cordova for 2006, I'm originally from Memphis proper, Midtown Memphis that is. Collierville was the closest city they had listed on this site to Cordova. Cordova is hot, sweltering in the summers, and crime is creeping in little by little. You see thug-looking guys walking through even so-called 'nice' neighborhoods now. The racial tension can definitely be felt. And the thunderstorms and tornado warnings drive you nuts. I lived in an apartment RIGHT next to a blood-curdling loud warning siren that would go off almost daily in storm season - scared us half to death! And the bugs and mosquitos and hornets and wasps drive you crazy buzzing around your windows. The 'water bugs' are BIG and ugly and get into even a third story apartment unit - it's horrible having a stand-off at 3 am with a big huge gross ugly waterbug that you spot in the kitchen on your way to the bathroom - yuck! They look like 3" long 2" high ugly black cock roaches! ick!
Crime, Storms, Heat, Racism Posted On: 8/8/2007 11:43:12 AM
Currently living in beautiful, sunny Southern California, I moved back to my hometown of Memphis for a year in 2006. The crime rate is hurrendous, every night on the news that's all you hear about. And the constant thunderstorms and sweltering summer heat and humidity make going anywhere and doing anything downright depressing. Although the people are mostly really sweet, there is a tense racial undercurrent that makes living there quiet uncomfortable. It's so expensive here in California in comparison, but it may be well worth it. I own a home in Midtown Memphis and a farm property a couple of hours from it. My heart is still in Memphis, but I must say that physically I will remain in California. I get so sentimental and miss it every day.
