I cannot remember the very last time we have experienced such cold weather for such a prolonged period of time. I don't even know if I've covered any of the plants outside in the past five years or so. I've received so many comments from the neighbors on my choice of sheets to cover the plants. Plaid and animal print..... Yes!!!!!

The end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 have been very cold by southern Louisiana standards. I am enjoying my second "sneaux day" which is quite rare in New Orleans. Though we did not get much snow, we did get lots of ice. Everyone knows southerners cannot walk or drive on ice. 

The poor plants could not weather the hard freezes we have experienced the last couple days.

I have been inside for two whole days watching my Hoda, Kelly & Ryan, KLG & Hoda (again), and marathons of Law & Order. The rest and relaxation is so nice.

How did you spend your #sneauxdays?

Sneaux Days, y'all!


  1. Hi, Ron! I can't believe you have snow!! Love your plant covers! Ice is definitely no fun at all! Take care, be safe, and stay warm and cozy.

  2. LOL about your 'plant covers'...I bet you have boxers to match, too. lol

    I have been hooked on those Law & Order reruns, too. Somewhere along the line I lost my 'taste' for Kelly--love Ryan though.

    Stay of the icy streets!!! xo Diana

  3. Isn't’ that something! Who would of thought you’d be experiencing this kind of weather in NOLA! I hope there won’t be too much damage to your plants. Love the sheets you chose too! Ice is the worst- at least with snow it’s more driveable and not so bad to walk on. Hopefully your weekend will be much improved!

  4. Good morning, Ron! I am definitely laughing at your choice of plant covers! I'm a cold weather person, but this has been a brutal cold snap. At least it is going to warm up today. Have a good day! xoxo

  5. Hi Ron,
    Love all your wonderful plant covers. You even prepare for the unexpected with class and style!
    Sorry you are having our kind of weather. We are use to this crap you are not. Hope your plants do ok. Love Law and Order reruns!!!
    Happy Friday.
