My family recently planned a trip down south to attend Mardi Gras.
Because the celebration takes locale during the Springtime I never even thought about the air temperature.
I feel that it would be mild because it was still early Springtime so I packed mainly long sleeve shirts and jeans thinking that I would be fine. My nice friend and I should have all evaluated the national weather report before my pal and I headed out for our trip. The area where the celebration takes locale was experiencing some honestly peculiar weather. Normally they have afternoontime highs in the 73’s but this year hot and cold temperatures were reaching up to 85 degrees. The afternoons were boiling and humid and you can see the waves of heat rising from the streets. My jeans and long sleeve shirts were just not going to cut it so I had to go shopping for some cooler clothing. As everyone knows most of the celebration takes locale in the streets of the town and you are subjected to outdoor hot and cold temperatures instead of nice indoor events. There are parades, bands, and plenty of cold beverages to help you celebrate but if you are overdressed you will surely be uncomfortable. Even with the cooler clothing I would duck into restaurants and bars for a break from the heat. These locales are all equipped with quality Heating and Air Conditioning systems to accommodate their guests and are used to having more than 2 visitors during this time of year. I don’t even suppose they mind that their monthly 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 everyone should have at least once in their lifetime.
