This neighborhood map of New Orleans has been tremendously helpful. Where is Mid-City? Bywater? Uptown?

Mardi Gras is getting into full swing in New Orleans. We can’t tell you how many times our neighbors have warned us not to move our cars because we’ll lose our parking spaces for days.
Eighteen parades roll this weekend in the New Orleans area, according to MardiGrasNewOrleans.com. If you work today, no worries. You can catch the ones Saturday and Sunday.
We spotted these two fish-themed Mardi Gras floats Sunday during a walk around Uptown. They are stored in a nondescript warehouse. The workers wheeled them to the street and put them back inside in less than 10 minutes. #mardigrasninjas
This one looks like it relates to Poseidon/Neptune:
It’s been a busy week for us. Movers from Williams Transfer in Tupelo came Thursday and loaded our stuff in Tupelo. BTW, it was snowing while they were loading. Brrrrr.
The guys then made the trip to New Orleans and met us at the apartment at 8 a.m. Friday. Friday, it was nothing but blue skies and sunshine in New Orleans. Nice change.
Word of advice to fellow newcomers: Make sure your moving truck has directions on roads that will accommodate a big truck. Our truck had to detour because of construction and the top of the truck pulled down a cable hanging overhead. Ruh roh.
