Rained out!!

Back home..............

I rained all afternoon Friday, and I delayed my departure for several hours that evening expecting a call, or an e-mail advising the soccer matches in Temecula were cancelled, or were being played as scheduled. Unfortunately no one was willing to make a decision last night, so eventually I departed Ontario around 9pm and pointed the Newell south on I-15 to Temecula. I arrived a little after 10pm, and decided to park outside the soccer complex on the street, which is in an industrial area. I still wasn't sure they were going to play this morning, so I saw no point in driving into the complex on the muddy dirt road and then having to leave this morning. I awoke around 6am to steady rain.....it had rained pretty much continuously all night. I checked my Blackberry for the expected e-mail advising the matches had been cancelled, but NO e-mail.....hmmm. Finally around 6:45am I called one of the referee administrators to see what he knew.....what he knew was that the matches had been cancelled, but they had not been able to contact the referee assignor to send out the e-mail. Sooooooo.....I turned over the Detroit Diesel and headed home....no point in sitting around Temecula all day waiting to hear the same message again for tomorrow's matches. The weather forecast shows continuous rain all day, and most of tonight, so I would not think the fields will be playable tomorrow...BUT, we'll see.

  3. We are actually east of the corner, about middle ways in the block, on north side. Behind the Muffler Shop there is a circle of auto shops. We are in the one that has the GMC motorhomes parked out front. Miguel Mindez is the owner. I am hoping to be gone by Tues. or Wed of this coming week.
