A Frozen Mardi Gras [Photos]
It was a cold Mardi Gras day in Acadiana, and I spent part of that day snapping pictures…Yesterday’s freezing temperatures turned Mardi Gras into Mardi Blah for many people in Acadiana, having made the decision to stay inside with the fireplace and a pot of gumbo on the stove.
Normally, there would have been so many people that you wouldn’t have been able to see many of the sights that I saw yesterday. On a normal Mardi Gras day, when the weather participates, you can hardly see across the parking lot, much less across the street.
Empty bleachers added a sense of sadness to the day…
Almost everything in Acadiana was covered with ice.
Ice, ice everywhere!
Not having a ‘proper’ Mardi Gras was a source of sadness for many in Acadiana, even the tulips…
