Sleet and Snow and Cold Today
After having gotten out from the snow that fell here on 20 January, last night we got some sleet, followed today by some snow. Some more snow and sleet to come tonight and early tomorrow. Roads were real slick, and I had no place to go. (The IPMS/St. Louis meeting tonight was called all this morning, by the Thornhill Branch Library, which was closed today.) Hope I can get out a bit tomorrow.
Since my last blog post, I went to a dinner in University City on 20 Jan. put on my St. Louis United FC, a soccer supporters group (www.stlunitedfc.net). They screened the documentary Pelada for us. They'll meet again later this month. Two days later, I went to a Meetup of singles in Crestwood that discussed online dating web sites, with their pros and cons. I also got some praise for my profile on one of those sites. I refereed some futsal the next night in Maryland Heights.
I had my monthly referee clinic in west St. Louis County on 24 Jan., in which offside was discussed at length, with the help of an audio/visual program. The next night was the IPMS/Gateway business meeting, held here at my parents' house. We (the club's executive board) planned the February meeting (Tue., 15 Feb.) and discussed some other club business. I was at Renee's Bar & Grill in University City for Stress Free Fridays on the 28th, and refereed futsal in St. Peters the next night. I was back in U. City on Sunday, the 30th for an informal meeting of the Meetup group that met in Crestwood just over a week before.
Hope the weather's nicer by my next post, and by my birthday next week. Later.
