I love the Yahoo Backyard Rink crew! At the advice of one member, I took a roof rake to the rink last night. That allows you to at least partially clear the snow from an unfrozen rink, giving the slush/water exposure to the fridig night air. I spent two quality hours out there last night and got about 80% of the snow off the shallow end of the rink. The deeper/low end is frozen enough to walk on, though I’m still worried about falling through with skates on and ruining the entire shebang. But with very cold temps forecasted for at least another day, I’m holding out hope.
- Christmas skate? Maybe not.
