Terrebonne officials reminded residents to keep the temperature above 55 degrees.

LAPLACE, Louisiana — Southeast Louisiana is bracing for winter, and pipe wrapping and propane are in demand in riverside parishes still recovering from Hurricane Ida.

On Wednesday morning, Fisher’s Ace Hardware in LaPlace sold propane until it could be refilled in the afternoon.

This is another sign that times are about to crash.

Sales associate Douglas Labat says those living in caravans are stocking up to keep their temporary homes warm.

“There are a lot of caravans here, not just from Ida, where people are because their houses are being repaired, and also a lot of people from out of town are still there to repair and they come. in caravans and that’s what they live in,” Labat said.

Labat says many customers have come in for pipe insulation, exterior faucet covers and electrical tape.

River parishes and the North Shore will need to prepare for icy roads and frosty windshields from Thursday night through Friday morning, and cold weather for much of the weekend.

From Terrebonne to St. Tammany, every parish affected by the forecast kept residents updated on Facebook. St. Tammany Parish Public Schools says they are monitoring the situation closely to make a decision on tuition.

Terrebonne officials reminded residents to keep the temperature above 55 degrees.

But Ace Hardware already has a head start and is preparing for repairs that could take place on the other side of the weekend.

“We actually stock up, we stock up on Friday with pipe fittings and stuff in case they freeze and break,” Labat said.
