Thanks To The Cold Snap, We've Got A New Neighborhood Amenity
All the rain that fell last year left the lower part of our neighborhood overflowing with water, but not all of it seeped into the basements of nearby homes. There is now a more or less permanent wetland where a wide open field used to be.
As you can see over my shoulder in the above picture, it has frozen over - the result of frigid winter temperatures.
With a kid in college and another preparing to go, I'm always working the angles. So if you're interested in doing a little ice skating, I'd be totally willing to let you use my daughter's skates - for a small fee, of course.
