We don't want to jinx anything, but it sure is starting to feel like spring in St. Louis.
After a winter full of polar vortices, frost quakes and far too many snow days, St. Louisans are itching to feel the sun on their skin -- and to get those salt stains off their cars.
Patios, playgrounds and public spaces were packed Sunday, despite the temperature staying slightly-cool at around 55 degrees.
It's like Lord of the Flies at any public playground today.— City Museum (@citymuseum) March 9, 2014
People seemed willing to take any excuse to get outdoors:
