Weather from St. Louis

#LeighsLessons:  Weather from St. Louis

Hi Everyone!! I am sure many of you are aware of the hurricanes that have hit the southern coast of the US. At my school we have been doing clothing drives as well as supplies to donate to the people affected by these storms. My church also sent a truck filled with water and supplies. I am continuing to pray for our country and the struggles we are faced with everyday. With that being said, this post is going to be about weather in St. Louis! St. Louis is in Missouri and apart from our little city the majority of Missouri is farmlands. However, St. Louis gets a taste of everything. “If you don’t like the weather in St. Louis, stick around because it will change.” is a popular saying that is tossed around frequently within our city. Today there is a high of 100 degrees in September. Let that sink in. 100 degrees. How am I supposed to enjoy my Pumpkin Spice Latte when I am sweating buckets just standing outside? I am ready to break out the Uggs and sweaters but NOOOO, more summer for us. So guys, if you want to survive heat here’s what you have to do:

  1. Embrace it. It’s going to be hot and you’re going to sweat no matter what, so instead of fighting it, might as well smile about it.

  2. Celebrate it. If it means having a slushie on the way home from work, go ahead and do it!

  3. And finally, Believe it. Believe that it will get cold and then you will be wishing for the summer and flip flops again when you can’t feel your toes.

St. Louis is a great city to live in, the weather is changing and you can always count on a dose of anything at anytime. I remember when I was in 7th grade we had several snow days within weeks of each other and one time even had two back to back. But last year we didn’t have any snow days at all. Weather is an interesting thing and we should all take a moment to enjoy it. Oh and how about that solar eclipse?? St. Louis was on the path of totality no big deal :) :) I have included some pictures that I feel show a variety of weather and nature that we are able to see because we live on Earth. I challenge you to take a moment and stand outside (even though it is hot) and think about how cool our Earth is because of the weather and nature around us.

Leaving, Later, Out.
