I was down the week of Mardi Gras and it was gorgious. Landed in cold and snow when I went back home. But even if the weather had been miserable, I didn't go for the weather. Spent my childhood in Charleston SC, where the heat and humidity rule the summer and people apologize for the cold weather in Feb. if the temp drops below 65. Remember running barefoot all the time, and leaving footprints in the tar when I crossed the street. Then moved north where ice formed on the inside of my bedroom window in the winter. So for me, La in July isn't an issue. La anytime would be just fine. But that's just me. Have fun!
Seriously though, do not take your dog(s)on vacation ( where the sun, melts the street surfaces like tar,without protection for their feet),otherwise
yer pooches won't loose their "abnormaly" long ears , but will be minus their paws.
Get them some special dog foot wear for hot surfaces like sand and tar, or else , sleep the all day, and party all night.
So hot in LA one day that I saw cows freeze to death...
see they were all standing next to a field of corn hoping to get a little breeze. The sun was so hot it made the corn pop. The hoped-for breeze carried the popped corn over the cows heads. They are so stupid, they thought the popped corn was snow and just stood there and froze to death.
PS: Seriously it really happened that way, honest, you have my word as a salesman.
Guy there are no apologize needed. But at some time or other you have too decide. Now having said that, people are not dying in the street from the heat. Summer is a good time to go to Louisiana. Go and enjoy
