BOWLING GREEN, MO (KTVI)-- The snowflakes started to fall in Pike County, Mo just after 8:00pm on Monday.

“I hate snow.  I hate the cold,” said one customer at the Orscheln Farm and Home Store.

For the first time this fall, the store put its ice melt out in front of the store.

“You just try to deal with what Mother Nature deals you,” said Kirk Heil, store manager.

The snow was not sticking to the ground even though temperatures dropped like a rock most of the day.

One customer left St. Louis and 62 degree temperatures around 3:00pm.  When he got out of his car in Bowling Green about an hour and a half later the temperature was 42.

Wind chills were expected to make temperatures feel more like the teens on Monday night.

“I just hope it doesn’t last real long,” said one customer.  “I don’t think it will because this is Missouri.”
