Slowly, the new outdoor rink beside the school is taking shape. The plan was to build a roof over the existing ice pad to cut down on the time, cost and headache of clearing off the surface after every time it snowed. (No zamboni here, folks.) Apparently, once construction began, someone realized that the new roof would hang over off the property line so they then had to tear everything out - including the rink and move it back a few feet. Things are moving quickly now. The picture below was taken early Friday morning and when we passed it on the way home that evening, the metal structure was already covered with a giant piece of fabric for the roof.
Here is the best picture I could find of the old rink, chain-link fences, horses and all.
