Outdoor rink thread

The idea behind this thread is to talk about hockey in its purest form: the outdoor rink. Share your stories of those cold days where you just didn't want to come in and tips on how to build a successful rink.

I live out in the country and recently we just had a multitude of freezing rain. This formed a pond in a field just outside of my house. Now we just had a big snow storm and everything has frozen up solid. Today I went out and cleared the snow from ontop of the ice. It isn't cold enough to be skated on but it can be walked on. The forecast for the upcoming is cold so I'm hoping to have an outdoor rink by mid-week.

We finally got a snowblower so maintenance will be alot quicker and easier. I plan to use a simple bucket of water to maintain the ice as there is not hose near by.
