It feels like spring.

I saw these wonderful clouds with the sun blasting through them. I needed a subject. The power pole worked just fine. Since I’ve mostly been working with trees in the past week, let’s just call this a metal tree.

Or, something.

I don’t want to turn this into “the weather blog,” but this is typical of Southeastern Louisiana weather. We had some pretty cold days and nights. Hard freezes that will help everybody out come summer because a lot of insect eggs — like mosquitoes and fleas — were killed by… nature. No insect sprays. Nothing man-made. Just “Ma Nature.”


Yesterday, I was wearing a t-shirt while I was  outside doing stuff. Our highs were in the mid-to- high 60s. The lows were in the 50s. That’s one of the benefits of living in the swamp.

That won’t last long. By next weekend we will have freezing temperatures. Again.

Since Mardi Gras is so early this year, I’m pretty sure it will be a cold two weeks in the streets. I may leave as some of you have suggested. Or, I may photograph the start of the parades, hang around and work on my trash project. We’ll see.

It’s kind of funny. If one of you were coming for Mardi Gras, your plans would be made. Your flights and hotels would be booked and you’d know what you were doing. Because I live here, I can hem and haw until Mardi Gras just sort of falls in my lap.

Nothing but slothfulness and laziness.
