Now its not gonna get above 25 degrees until wednesday. I checked my rink this am and its a disaster. There is about 3 inch thick jagged ice. if somebody fell on that they would bleed out.
Even though you said you were against flooding it, I am tempted just to flood the whole rink with another inch or 2 of water from the hose today. Seeing how tomorrow isnt supposed to get above 15 degrees.
I dont think any rink rake or hot water is gonna fix this mess.
Yup. Flood it. If you get shale ice, just break it with your boot, shovel, etc and flood it again. Keep at it.
