It's rainin' in New Orleans today. On Mardi Gras! I've been watching a few live-feeds from Bourbon Street and people are still out there, struttin' their stuff. The parade floats have canopies on them so the float participants won't get drenched.
It was raining in Los Angeles on Saturday too for the Original Farmers Market Mardi Gras celebration. Sunday was definitely better. I was there on Saturday night during the deluge. Somehow, the rain made the event seem even cozier. Everyone huddled under the awnings and tin roofs at the Market. Eddie Baytos and his Nervis Bros. were playing their hearts out. People were dancing. We ate some yummy red beans and rice from The Gumbo Pot and enjoyed a few bites of delicious beignets. All in all, it was a good time.

I plan on stopping by the Market tonight, at least for a little while, to hear the last strains of "Hey Pocky Way," "It's Carnival Time," and "New Suit."
