As my Mardi Gras CD is blasting, to the chagrin of my cats, I'm gathering the goods to take for our celebration at the nursing home. I'll be making jambalaya shortly.
I just checked the Parade Cams, and sadly after a week of beautiful warm weather in New Orleans, today is rainy/sleety and 34 degrees. Bourbon Street is packed nevertheless but the parade route looks sparse. Zulu should be wrapping up and Rex starting as I type this.
Despite the lousy weather I wish a Happy and Safe Mardi Gras to my friends in NOLA, and especially to my 'grandson' Bubba!
