As most of you know, the state of Louisiana is known for its extreme temperatures and humid climates.  Temperatures rising into the 100-degree scale is not uncommon. Needless to say, the dream of a “winter wonderland” or a “White Christmas” will most likely never be fulfilled. Down here, we spend our Thanksgiving and Christmas break in mainly shorts and t-shirts.

As I scroll through my social media, I can not help but notice the joy of others in cute sweaters and enjoying pumpkin patches. I wonder what it would be like to be able to wear long sleeves and not begin to sweat the moment I step outside. While talking to my friend, junior Graci Hargrave, she explained: “ I wear the same thing year round and my body temperature does not fluctuate at all”. I guess you can say, that living in Louisiana is kind of like living inside an oven. 

Did I mention that people down here are crazy? Once the temperature drops below 75 degrees, sweaters, leggings, and boots of all kinds are everywhere. Although the weather can be a pain, on days where the humidity is lower than 98% it can actually be quite bearable. Senior Elena Harris says she enjoys “sitting by a fire and living in the moment with friends and family are my favorite things about fall”. Even though the temperature can sometimes be a pest, fall in Louisiana is one of my favorite seasons.
