winter storm

South Louisiana doesn't see snow very often, so when a winter storm arrives people don't spend all their time stockingĀ up on essentials. This is Louisiana, after all, and many take advantage of theĀ rare opportunity to enjoy the winter weather.

There wasn't much to work with, however, despite systems that swept through the state twice this week, dumping a wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice on cities from Lafayette to Ruston to coastal Mississippi.
