"Rain on St. Peter Street"
On our last trip, in early March, I experienced the true magic of New Orleans. We were out very early in the French Quarter on Mardi Gras Day. It was maybe 60 degrees and, Oh It Was Raining! But after a few minutes, we didn't even notice. Everyone was out, tourists and locals all calling out "Happy Mardi Gras!". And all the greetings were truly warm, in the spirit of friendship; and it was too early in the day to be that kind of "spirits." It was a day I will carry in my heart always.
