The frenzy amazes me. Have we ever been snowed in for more than a day or two??

We have lived in our current house for over 20 years and we always meant to build a nice patio. In fact, we told the builder that we didn’t need him to put anything in the back because we were going to build a large deck or patio back there right away. He insisted on leaving his regular slab of concrete there and his concrete steps up to the back door. We have never added to that over the years. There has always been something else that we wanted more. And we found that we don't really like sitting out in the backyard. The backyard is for the animals and the gardens. So we have NO patio furniture. Not one piece. I was locked outside once and I had to sit on an old tire.

That's the safest way we can figure out how many inches it snowed without actually going outside to measure it............

We like to see snow and take photos of our patio furniture so when it is hit as hell, we can get the photos out and enjoy them!!! Hee hee

I enjoy the pictures of St. Louis Cars in ditches, the fools here can't drive in snow because they have the Wrong tires for winter driving.

I think RFT needs to stop being so crabby and just enjoy something for once.

Does it bother anyone else that the bread forecast is for Indiana, not St. Louis?

Yeah, the entire city shuts down whenever they get a snowfall that is greater than two inches. If they get over three inches, they call it a major snow event, and have weather coverage on all local television stations for the next 24 to 48 hours. All schools close BEFORE any snow starts to fall.

I remember when that blizzard we had back in early 2011, or that winter storm we had in February 2013 was supposed to be called the Second Snowpocalpyse.

Is THAT what it is? Are all St. Louisans subsisting solely on sugar?! That's awesome.

When I saw the one about Diana Zoga, I figured it was going to be a bunch of dudes offering their jackets to hit on her. I was surprised, and disappointed. Step up that game, STL guys.
