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.

They forgot to add a 7th one, people magically turn into total fuckhead drivers the minute a snow flake hits the ground. It's like there is a chemical in the snow that makes everyone want to drive 80mph in the most dangerous weather.

One correction RFT: everyone knows St. Louisians aren't making egg salad from all that bread, milk and eggs bought in panicked anticipation -- we are making French Toast!

Just found out what a "French toast alert" is... People buying the ingredients to make French toast... Except there isn't a shortage of cinnamon...hmmm. Curious.

Why is there a scrolly story within the story? That's kinda dumb.
