The First Weekend of Spring in St. Louis Will Be Ruined By Snow



Spring is officially here! And with it comes forecasts of five to eight inches of snow in St. Louis.

So instead of giving you Daily RFT's planned ode to spring in St. Louis, we direct you you dear readers to our 20 Reasons to Love Winter in St. Louis, because apparently Mother Nature is not ready to move on. (Side note, this could be the most snow on any day in the last week of March in more than 60 years!)

So brace yourselves, St. Louis. Or choose denial. Sometimes the experts are wrong, right?

Happy Friday!
