My family recently planned a trip down south to attend Mardi Gras.
- Because the celebration takes place during the Springtime I never even thought about the air temperature.
I suppose that it would be mild because it was still early Springtime so I packed mainly long sleeve shirts plus jeans thinking that I would be fine. My associate and I should have all checked the national weather report before my friend and I headed out for our trip. The section where the celebration takes place was experiencing some easily peculiar weather. Normally they have daytime highs in the 78’s however this year temperatures were reaching up to 85 degrees. The days were sizzling plus humid plus you can see the waves of heat rising from the streets. My jeans plus long sleeve shirts were just not going to break it so I had to go shopping for some cooler clothing. As almost everyone knows most of the celebration takes place in the streets of the neighborhood plus you are subjected to outdoor temperatures instead of nice indoor events. There are parades, bands, plus plenty of cold beverages to help you celebrate however if you are overdressed you will surely be uncomfortable. Even with the cooler clothing I would duck into restaurants plus bars for a break from the heat. These places are all equipped with quality Heating plus Air Conditioning systems to accommodate their guests plus are used to having many visitors during this time of year. I don’t even suppose they mind that their energy bills are a bit higher during this time of year because they make up for it because they are three times as tied up as they normally are. Celebrating at Mardi Gras it’s an awesome experience that almost everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.
