Backyard rinks?

We have a place in Maine. My kids skate on the pond in the back. I just shovel. There's an outdoor rink at the local high school that we use. Boards and all. Pretty rad to kids who live in south jersey.

In Gatineau/Ottawa we've had some one day significant snow drops but as it warmed up it would melt quite a bit. There's still a no skating warning in effect for the Rideau Canal. The creek near my place looks way too sketchy to even try. Not even the odd parking lot puddle has shown promise. Aside 1 or 2 cold snaps in November, this winter has been pretty mild. Been great for running though :D

Yeah it's been pretty warm here also. I filled early so the kids got to skate between Christmas/NY, but it's nowhere near thick enough for adults and too slushy for the kids now.

I'm seriously considering refrigeration next year, it's not been too worthwhile the past few years for natural ice with all of the freeze/thaw (other than the Polar Vortex a few years ago).
