You could just come to our parking lot today and slide around, but I have a safer alternative for you.

I traveled hours and hours into the St. Louis area over the weekend. The weatherman was calling for an icy winter mix the entire trip. I drove through lots of rain, but didn't deal with much ice at all.

The second I pulled back into my subdivision Monday I was sliding all over the place. Nothing like the feeling of driving on an ice skating rink.

According to WREX you could do some skating on ice for free at Carlson Ice Arena.

The good news for people like me, Carlson is celebrating National Skate Month with free  skating lessons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  I think this is a must, my skating skills are about a D- level.

For more information about times and prices at Carlson Ice Area click here, happy free skating lessons!
