I didn't agree to come south for the winter for THIS!
Yeah, it's just a little bit of snow, but it's sticking, and it's still falling, and it's cold! And while we find the loft of our rental attractive, the double-tall ceiling makes it quite hard to heat the house. And I think the person who sold the owners their firewood conned them; it's not dry enough to burn properly yet. I heard from a friend in Marseille (2 hours east of us) that they have 4 inches of snow already and it is still coming down.
I'm going to have to rethink our retirement plans for St Louis. I'm not sure I want to live somewhere there is snow ever again. Any suggestions for a nice, temperate climate? 65-80° year round sounds good to me!
