Same temperatures here in Portland OR area. Been to STL many times. Love the botanical gardens and art museum.
For what it's worth (not much but I like to tell people), turkeys were domesticated by the Aztecs and transported to Spain by the conquistadores, where they were exported around N. Africal and Europe including Turkey; Turkish farmers raised them then Turkish merchants transported them to England where the English named them for the Turks, then to New England where the Puritains preferred them to the local cousins of the turkey, which they named "wild turkeys" and which, like the native people, were later wiped out by the christian colonists. Happy thanksgiving!
