Snow...again for parts of St. Louis area

KSDK - The St. Louis region has now had it's 10th snow storm for the winter season.

One area is in the bullseye once again and digging out right now, south of St. Louis in Jefferson and Ste. Genevieve counties.

An all too familiar scene outside for most, yet another blanket of snow, but this time around you don't see kids playing, making snowmen or snow angels.

"I'm ready for spring," said Nate Basler, a kid who's ready to see the green grass.

Sunday's snow storm again walloped the southern parts of Missouri and Illinois, which means covered cars, coated trees and slick streets.

Ste. Genevieve residents Nate and his dad Eric are hoping the snowflakes stay away for good this time.

"It's been rough, we don't know what to do with the kids everyday," Eric said. "They want to go to school, they want to be around their friends."

Many in this area say this winter will be remembered.

"It's been a horrible winter the worst I know of ever," said Kenneth Squires, Ste. Genevieve resident.

For resident Danny Wolk, he's making the most out of the situation.

"Maybe not that much money, maybe 5-10 dollars here and there," he said.

Wolk admits even the extra cash isn't worth yet another snowstorm.

For the city of Ste. Genevieve, the cost of the winter is bursting the budget.

Mayor Dick Greminger, who is now a pro cleaning off his driveway, says they are $50,000 over the city's snow removal budget.

He says winter just won't give up.

"You just deal with it, there's not much you can do about it," the mayor said.

Both IDOT and MoDot predict the roads will be okay for the Monday morning commute.

MoDot says they are keeping a few crews around just in case of refreezing.
