I now know why I feel so crowded here. It is noisy in this town and there are people everywhere. I looked on city data to get population numbers and look at this.
Indiana: County population in July 2009: 105,967
The two counties we straddle:
Missouri: County population in July 2009: 9,315
Arkansas: County population in July 2009: 16,594
The land area is amazing as well. Vigo county Indiana has a land area of 403 square miles. Missouri: 742. Arkansas: 598. More land and less people makes for a more peaceful existence.
I am going to be taking the children in half an hour to Little Caesars for a get together with friends that I haven't seen in forever and I am really looking forward to it.
