    I went to the Salvation Army last night to get out of the cold. The web site said single men, women and families are invited. After standing outside for a couple of hours someone from the Salvation Army came up in 30 degree weather and told me that they only excepted women. Would have been nice to know that before I stood around. All the shelters were to far away for me to walk Broken Ankle and they were all full that excepted men. So I spent the night in 30 degree weather.
