Default St Louis Weather sucks

Hello. 75 degrees and sunny this morning. Tornado watch and sleet by 3pm. 25 degrees and snow by 6pm.

I had better never hear anyone from Michigan complain about the volatile weather again.

I can't say I blame him, any place is better than Michigan.

Although I have to agree with him the Michigan has nothin on the midwest when it comes to weather changes.

It's now 15 degrees. Dropped 60 degrees in one day. Supposed to be snowing Friday and still be cold on Saturday. Best to just drive on through.

Didn't hear it. However we live 2.5 miles from the only ski area on St. Louis. The powder is perfect. However I had surgery on my foot 2 days ago so I can't go.

Roads are clear, but Missouri folks don't know how to drive in snow so most are sitting at home pouting. Me and my homies who transferred down here from Michigan are the only ones at work today. Front row parking though.

lived in Bloomington IL for several years and visited St. Louis often. sounds great now but not in august. every year we in michigan get a late jan, early feb run of 10 days below 10 degrees with wind. St. Louis and central illinois always get the heat in summer. 10~14 days straight of the wind is out of the west, at least 20 mph, with 90% humidity and temps at 100+. great for corn and soybeans but not human beings. michigan is just fine with me.
