For some people, winter is the best time of the year. Even after
the holidays are finished, there are still snowball fights and many nights of
hot cocoa to look forward to. However, that’s not the case here in Louisiana.
As a person who is cold literally all the time, winter is my biggest enemy.
Louisiana winters are temperamental, to say the least. There’s mild days,
freezing days and those days when it randomly feels like summer again. There’s
zero consistency here.
Sometimes, it does get very cold. But, not a picturesque, Insta-worthy cold. It is a muggy, humid AF cold that makes you want to stay in bed for the rest of your life.
Somehow, we always tend to be under-dressed for the weather and wind up freezing cold.
The days when the weather changes dramatically throughout the day are the best. Louisiana winters are starting your day off in leggings, then putting on shorts, and then having to change again to put on leggings.
You might as well have an outfit change on hands at all times.
Mardi Gras comes early this year, so that means freezing your a** off at parades. For those who love getting pegged in the face with beads, the winter cold is here to make that experience all the more enjoyable!
Nothing screams "Louisiana" like catching a cold because you were waiting outside for the parade for hours. Thank God for space heaters and hand warmers.
People actually do those things like that? Outside in the cold? For fun?
Just because it’s not snowing doesn’t mean I’m not suffering.
For those of us who just don’t quite enjoy winter, don’t fret! It’ll be back to scorching heat soon enough. Thanks, global warming!
