I worked today. It’s the first Mardi Gras day I have had to work since I moved to Mobile. I’m sure most of my readers are saying, “So?” It’s Tuesday, you are supposed to be at work. Yeah well, maybe in a normal world; but on the Gulf Coast on Mardi Gras day, schools are closed and some businesses close or work a skeleton crew.
At least one of my co-workers brought all the staff some cool Mardi Gras beads this morning. That helped.
So, for everyone that had to work today and didn’t attend the festivities in Mobile, Alabama or New Orleans, Louisiana or Rio De Janerio…enjoy a Bourbon Street Web Cam high atop the Cat’s Meow on Bourbon Street, New Orleans.
Mobile has a Street Cam but it’s located on a corner where not much happens and it is not a live stream(3 second refresh).
And remember, after Mardi Gras they still operate with lots of stuff to still see along Bourbon Street.
