ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the fastest ice on earth):
9 am – 11 am: 7.5
It was incredible how great the ice was considering that about two days ago there wasn’t any ice at all. There were a few bumpy spots and it was slow in places due to the snow, but otherwise pretty good for the first day back!
THE BENCH REPORT (from 1-5 with 1 being super cold, I can’t leave the bench, someone, bring me some hot chocolate): 3
It was cold and snowy, but not so snowy that one could turn into frosty the snowman.
4 pm – 5 pm: 8
The ice was a bit faster, and certainly busier! Several local skaters, visitors, “regulars”…nice to see the Oval so busy!
THE BENCH REPORT: 4
Improved! A slightly warmer temperature means warmer fingers and toes!
