This weather is UNREAL!

Ok, 50° just a few days ago and now this! It started raining yesterday evening, then the sleet started. We had thundersleet last night. Almost 1 1/2 inches of little ice pellets accumulated, and of course after sitting for six hours they all welded together to form and solid sheet of hard packed ice all over everything.

I had to take an ace scraper to the rink to get this stuff off. It took 2 1/2 hours to scrape it all and remove it leaving behind a bumpy surface. I reflooded with a small layer and it smoothed it all out. The kids are appreciative and the neighbors are shaking their heads in disbelief as none of them even tackled their own sidewalk.

Out skating we go.
