ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Enough of the cabin fever! It’s time to get out and walk on bare ground again.
Most of the ice and snow is fading fast, helped along by temperatures in the 50′s and lower 60′s.
Sunday, it looked like anyone who wasn’t at the St. Louis Zoo was at the car wash. Both were extremely busy.
St. Louisans were also making fashion statements. T-shirts and shorts seemed to be the preferred weekend wear.
And now that we can get outside, a look up to the sky shows a large number of jet contrails —long cloud-like lines made by planes flying at high altitudes. Upper atmosphere conditions are such that some of those lines make designs. We’ve seen the letter “X” in the sky and, from a certain angle, what looks like a large white box perched on top of the Gateway Arch.
