(KPLR) – In Tuesday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, if you are tired of our winter weather you are not alone.  But there is some good news.  

Here we go again.  That seems to be a line our weather department could use this winter.  It's been a lousy winter.

I don't know anyone who enjoys dressing in so many layers. I wear more pairs of socks in one week in the cold than I do most of the summer.  I do have some good news for you.  One local entomologist tells me the prolonged cold could put a dent in the tick, fly and mosquito population next year.

He says it's not a guarantee but at least it's something.  We need some good news and some better weather.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
