Somewhere in the last month or so, my wife decided that we should build a home ice rink. For all you youngsters out there … this translated into man-speak means: You build a hockey rink. We are a hockey family. From the months of November thru March, we live at the hockey rink. We have an 11 year old (pee-wee) and a 5 year old (mite) playing. They love it … we love it!
As luck would have it, we are experiencing one of the warmest winters on record … global warming??? No chance Gore baby … I’m driving the diesel till I die! This carbon footprint is a WAFFLE-STOMP! But I digress…
It has actually been kind of fun putting this thing together. Had some great opportunities for, “notes to self” for next year: the slope of the ground is something that should be considered before hand, blue tarp retains a little bit of heat, wood can get expensive, by a lot more nails than you think you need.
I’ll throw a couple pictures up when I get home from this weekend’s …. HOCKEY TOURNAMENT!
