Backyard Ice Rink

Last week winter came and the cold temperature cam in the weekend and in the beginning of the week. It was around -15 C. So it was time to to start constructing our wintery backyard ice rink. Well perhaps not so much constructing. More of shoveling a bit of snow and standing there with a water hose morning and evening. It looked great.

But yesterday it was raining and today it's  +5 C. It would be even better if it froze over now but according to the weather forecast that wont happen until the weekend. The freezing temperatures will also only last over the weekend. After that we got more warm weather. Well I hope they are wrong, because in this weather it wont be much of an ice rink by Christmas.
