Well...the biggest change in my personal life style since I joined the military is less than 12 hours away. I am not a morning person...much less an up at 1AM person. But that is the job I have been called to do...so that is the job I will do. I hope...when the weather is bad...I can count on some of you (those who stay up late or get up early) to be here...with your incredible flow of information. YOU make this blog....YOU bring real, life saving information to me that I can pass along to the viewers. The resource that you all provide is unmatched in STL television and is greatly appreciated. I rarely have to worry about bad information. I take your reports seriously. The National Weather Service takes your reports seriously! They LOVE you too!
So... I promised something you might like. While most of the world was focused on the massive, slow moving disaster that is Florence (and rightfully so) there was another story unfolding that deserves attention! The seasons have started to change. Not here in the Midwest. We are stuck on summer. But as you can see by this webcam picture from Lake Louise in Canada... SNOW has started to fall. Here's to hoping we can work together to cover many snowstorms and fun weather this fall and winter!

I was heading to Alberta and Alaska before a personal issue required me to return home. There was significant snow forecast for my route. Enough that there were suggestions that snow tires be installed before snow tire season begins October 1. Could have been a very interesting trip.

Ok, here's something that drives me nuts. When the media is covering major flooding, as in NC now, and they say this river is at 45 feet, or this river will crest at 54 feet. Those numbers mean nothing to 99.9% of people. All rivers have different flood levels, etc. If they want to tell us numbers, tell us how many feet above flood stage the river is or will be. If I said the Bourbeuse river in Union was at 25 feet, most here wouldn't what that means. It would be 10 ft over flood, but for the Mississippi river that would be 5 feet below flood. Perhaps I'm just crabby, or reading too much into it. Anyway, I hope your first morning is a good one Chris.

Had a little fundraiser for Alzheimer's yesterday afternoon. We were down at Borsch Park in Valmeyer. We wrapped up a little after Sunset and I'll tell you the mosquitoes came out in swarms right as we were leaving.
What’s the chances it’ll rain Saturday when we are trying to get a new Holding tank put in to a hole at the cabin that’s been dug since June waiting for the hot summer to be over and now that we plan on this, there’s talk of rain Fri night and Sat am! Argh!

grizzlebeard: I'll put this here since it rarely rolls over: Please include your location in your profile, or identify your location when posting observations. You saying it is 20 and raining doesn't help if we don't know where you are. That is all.

snowday_lover: So weird.... sun is really out here right now. I just expected it to be full cloud cover by now. Hopefully the clouds move in soon. I'm ready to see what we get down here.

gonefishin - WashMO: Okay. I know these storms are no laughing matter, and I don't know if anyone has posted this, AND I know it's from the Weather Channel, which in and of itself causes it to lose some credibility, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.
