The last day of festive and sometimes rowdy celebrations leading up to the start of the Lenten season (Ash Wednesday). Mardi Gras is also know as ” Fat Tuesday”, ” Shrove Tuesday”, or ” Pancake Day”.While Mardi Gras is celebrated throughout the southern US, it is most often identified with New Orleans, where it is celebrated with masquerade balls, King Cakes, and parades where beads, doubloons, cups, and trinkets are thrown from floats into the exuberant crowds.Join us for our Mardi Gras celebration – Mardi Gras on the Net

Weatherman’s Day
Commemorating America’s first Weatherman, John Jeffries, and a day to honor the weather professionals who bring us the good, and the bad, news in weather.

So lets give thanks to Al Roker and his compatriots for giving you something to talk about during those long awkward moments over at your girlfriends house.

Below is a great video showing the hazardous working conditions of our local weatherperson. And you thought that hurricane reporting was dangerous! (the sound level is a bit low so turn your speaker volume up)
