I was getting excited as well over the last couple weeks with sub-zero weather in Ontario and ice forming in the backyard. Well, that was until it hit 19.2'C yesterday and it all disappeared. I fully expect to be skating again this year on Christmas Eve as it has become tradition around my place. I believe in Santa just so he'll bring me ice in the backyard! :-)
