Re: Cactuses and Palms Trees in KC?

i have also successfully overwintered texas cultivars of agave in st. louis, without winter protection but heavy ozark gravel drainage, while i lost all of my cactus this past winter (spineless prickly pear...not the missouri version).

Re: Cactuses and Palms Trees in KC?

i also have successfully overwintered needle palms- rhapidophyllum hystrix and trachycarpus fortunei (windmill palms) in st. louis city/county so it's possible in kc. i think south city is a good half of a zone warmer than university city/stl county or kcmo, my palms seemed to do better down there e...

Re: Cactuses and Palms Trees in KC?

Thanks. This is interesting. I've always lamented the lack of native pines in Kansas and Northern Missouri. Whenever I drive through central Missouri (central north/south) I always look for northern stragglers of shortleaf pines out of the Ozarks. I've seen a few around Columbia that I think qualif...

Re: St Louis: City and County Consider Merger

Some sort of consolidation is definitely required, even if it's piecemeal. It's depressing when you look at Hanley Road south of Highway 40 and see a Home Depot in Brentwood, a Menards in Richmond Heights, and a Lowe's in Maplewood, all within half a mile of each other, and all built with TIF by ci...

Re: St Louis: City and County Consider Merger

it was hamfisted in that way that all rex sinquefield related things are. i was initially in favor of it but former stl county exec stengers involvement, who may be headed to prison, killed any chance it had. i live in inner county and the anti-merger signs have popped up like mushrooms after a wet ...

Re: Ballpark Village v4.7 (st. louis)

my shoot from the hip guess is that it will be a satellite of the mastercard tech headquarters, which has over 2500 employees. corporations in chicagoland do this when they have a split workforce of people who live an hour from downtown and a ton of reverse commuters.

the coast guard is considering closing st. louis harbor, which means the level is high enough to start backing up the missouri river.

three cranes over downtown st. louis is pretty surreal. used to seeing cranes over nashville like that but not (downtown) st. louis...its a good look! i'll be sad when they start taking down all of these cranes visible along I-64. there's like 7 of them right now between the arch and forest park and...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

^ It depends on where your flight it coming from and the direction of the wind. When I fly into KC, I will often fly right over downtown and land from the south. I think you have about as good a chance of seeing downtown KC as you do seeing downtown St Louis. By the way, the flight from DC or Balti...

Re: More vacant homes, more violent crime? Small area of Kansas City sees most homicides

i feel like violent crime in kansas city is constantly downplayed, especially in relation to st. louis. "small area..." ok... Perhaps one difference is proximity of the average local to these areas/crimes. Yes, every now and again there is a shooting in Westport at 3AM or something, but the majorit...

Re: More vacant homes, more violent crime? Small area of Kansas City sees most homicides

11 percent of a 319 square mile city is a massive area, that's 35 square miles, or what would be over half of the city of st. louis. i feel like violent crime in kansas city is constantly downplayed, especially in relation to st. louis. "small area..." ok...

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

Looks like California High Speed Rail is dead and the only line might be in the Central Valley. That's not dead, it's just truncated. It's a realization that state and federal funding hasn't materialized to build the system as proposed. A high speed rail going car centric cities in the Central Vall...
