ICE RATING (from 1 – 10 with 10 being, world-record-setting, blinded by it’s own greatness ice):
The ice was a bit rough this morning although the crew assured us that it would improve. There were a few frozen slush “bumps” on corners along with a bit of dirt and since it hadn’t been cut a lot yet, there were still grooves from the public session. If you could avoid the bumps and be careful, you could still move along pretty well.
The Bench Report (from 1-5 with 5 being, “I’m never gonna leave this bench”: 4
It was warmer than freezing today. Yay! A light dusting of snow on the benches couldn’t diminish our joy at not freezing to the spot. And no wind, which makes things even more pleasant!
