Good morning Acadiana. Today will be cold and windy but gorgeous. The hi temperature today will be 50. The Polyester Power Hour (PPH) is an old school retro show on 99.9 KTDY this morning. And today Jenn wanted it to be an 'Anything Goes' PPH. Today is National Caregivers Day, Sticky Bun Day and Grain-Free Day.
