LAFAYETTE, La- Temperatures may have been low but spirits were high as ice and rain joined sizzling pork chops and burgers for one of the more memorable Mardi Gras in Acadiana history.
Katherine Boursse said that of all the Mardi Gras she'd been to this one had the worst weather.
Even new comers experiencing Mardi Gras for the first time were disappointed in how the forecast panned out, but were still very excited to be seeing Mardi Gras first hand.
Almost everyone had the same thing to say about what Mother Nature dished up for the big day, complaining that it was cold and wet, but refused to let it get them down.
The thin crowds didn't bother anyone and without the competition along the parade route those who attended the parades were treated to plenty of beads.
At the end of the day people were more then happy to scoop beads out of frozen puddles and enjoy the big day.
