    Hello,

    I don't seem to find many posts from IL's in Milwaukee, WI.

    It looks like I will be relocating early next year on L2 visa. Can anybody tell any information about this city.

    I have questions about everything.
    how do u manage young kids in the cold weather?
    which apartments are safe?
    what should be the average annual salary for 2+2 family?
    what are the things that i should carry with me?

    Anything at all would help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you, Bharani... for taking the time out to reply.

    We have to look for something near Wauwutosa. My DH is asking me to come after Feb only (the school year will get over in India).

    Hope to get good friends for me and my kids, cos we have never lived anywhere else... :)

    @mbharani

    Could you pls tell me the name of some apartments with Indians (with kids) in Brookfield / Wauwatosa??

    My DH has relocated there already, and needs to find an apartment soon. If it is alright, pls mention the rent also. We are looking for a 2 bedroom (either 1or 2 bathroom) house with utilities and amenities.

    Thanks for your help in advance....:)

    Yes, I live in a big apt community which has atleast 30 Indian families. And many of them have kids and stay at home, so around 8 of us have become friends.

    There is an Indian store here too...

    Hope you had a good India trip. Just trying to forget what will happen in winter, and enjoying long bright days. :)
