Other than the frigid temperatures, this was a great weekend in St. Louis. I was visiting a friend there and we had the chance to journey to the top of the arch. I guess its official name is the Gateway Arch as part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, which stands 630 feet tall and is 630 feet wide (an interesting tidbit for you). The ride to the top of the arch takes less than 10 minutes, but the capsule that you ride in to the top is very small, so you can't be claustrophobic.
We also toured the Budweiser brewery and one of the local TV stations there in St. Louis. It's always interesting to see how others get things done and to see their setup.
Looking at the new data tonight, temperatures will be going up as we get closer to the weekend. I normally like winter weather and forecasting snow, but wow, some 60 and 70 degree weather would sure feel nice right now.
