More Schizophrenic Weather

With the temperature at a balmy 52 degrees, it’s hard to imagine the slip-n-slide that was my driveway this morning. It’s long been said that if you don’t like St. Louis weather, hang around an hour or two – it’s bound to change. This is definitely a place where you can see all four seasons within the same day!

Luckily, the closer we got to St. Louis this morning, the better the road conditions got. This was due in part to the salt trucks that were out on the major roadways. In fact, as we crossed the bridge, I noticed the water beginning to puddle. That’s always a good sign. My walk to the office was a whole lot different than my penguin march from home to the bus stop!

There’s supposed to be more rain tonight, but luckily, warmer temperatures through tomorrow. So no ice. Maybe.

At least not until tomorrow night – when it may snow.

They coated our parking lot with the equivalent of gravel sized salt. I appreciate the effort but walking in 3.5" spike heels is a little dangerous!

Pretty much the same weather here on the other side of the state, but without the frozen stuff. So far. The meteorologists have their panties in a bunch over the impending "winter storm event" that's heading in tomorrow. We'll see. Hope it's not bad.

MG -- Glad you like penguin marching. I HAD to illustrate it because I SO felt that way! :-) On the heels ... not so much. I couldn't walk in those on a dry, solid surface!

Jayne -- Hoping for both our sakes that it doesn't happen. Good luck!

firstbuilders -- Thank you! And thanks for stopping by.
