Final Week of Mardi Gras in Pensacola

Tonight is the Grand Mardi Gras parade in Pensacola, and I thought I would go. I was even betting I could talk my daughter-in-law into going with me, but the day has dawned windy and rainy, and the forecast is 100% for thunderstorms tonight.

Of course, 100% predictions just make me laugh. It could be that there will be no storms tonight, and no rain and no wind. But I’m putting any plans on hold.

Meanwhile, everywhere you go, you see the green, purple and gold of Mardi Gras in Pensacola. Houses have Mardi Gras wreaths on their doors, and masks decorate tables and walls.

  1. I love the Mardi Gras colors–a quilt needs to be made in these colors, don’t you think?

  2. I think you’re right! My most recent one (see other blog) has the purple, green and gold, but it also has red, so that would require a do-over, LOL. Hmmm. Maybe we should make this a joint challenge, once bible study is over?
