Bernthal – The Way It Oughta Be: Snow Days
(KPLR) – Winter has come and nearly gone. But where was it.
I will sound too much like the parent who walked barefoot to school if I talk about the blizzard of 82 but it was a monster.
I don`t remember how long I was off school I just know that I built an entire fort system in the backyard out of blocks of snow.
I don`t know where that type of winter went but we just haven`t seen much of one at all.
I don`t want ice – that`s no fun. The kids in St. Louis want snow and lots of it.
Some of the area stores are hoping for snow as well. They haven`t sold a snow shovel in a couple of years.
And sleds – well it looks to me that some stores have simply stopped carrying them. They take up too much space and apparently we don`t need them.
The weather folks always say March can be the month for snow in St. Louis but I don`t believe it.
I think after tomorrow winter is over and while some of you are so glad we didn`t really have one – there`s a part of me that wishes we had.
I’m JB and that’s The Way It Oughta Be.
