I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend this past weekend.
I had wished that the weather would have been nicer for everyone but with the original weather forecast showing rainy weather all day Sunday, it caused a lot of people to change their plans to later realize that the forecast on Sunday had changed once the early morning rain ended. A little windy but still, a nice Sunday.
We had a really nice weekend seeing a lot of our seasonal customers preparing for the Super Bowl weekend. We brought in enough Crawfish for all of our customers who ordered this weekend, unlike last year. We even had customers driving from out of state to get their first of the year fix on Crawfish.
Last year as many of my customers will remember, we had a layer of ice in Dallas during this same week and the weather in south Louisiana had 2-4″ of ice on the crawfish farms. I believe the farmers were able to bring me three sacks and that’s all they could catch.
I’m just happy that we were able to bring in all we needed for our reserved customers this year. Sorry for all the people who called on Sunday to see if we had any extra’s. And if the weather was predicted correctly for Sunday, everyone would have probably ordered in advance and would have had what they needed for Sunday.
So, Super Bowl is over and now it’s time to start thinking about what Special events and Holiday’s that we have coming up real soon.
Alrighty, here we go!
Next special occasion is:
Valentine’s Day 2-14-15 (Saturday)
