One of the best things about winter is the outdoor skating rinks.
Before the rinks can be flooded, the weather needs to be around 10 or 15 degrees.
"For the initial flooding, we can start any anytime. We try to get the ice in before the kids get out of school for Christmas break, so we'd like to start flooding in the next week or so," stated Bob Komarnisky who takes care of the Nacmine outdoor rink.
"We're kind of wondering if it's going to be a repeat of last year where we struggled to get it in before Christmas break. It looks like we're going to make it this year," added Komarnisky.
So, how long does it usually take to flood the Nacmine rink?
"If we start on a Friday evening, we will have it up and running for the following Friday evening. We can have it up in a week," outlined Komarnisky.
"We usually lose it a couple times of year. Last year was a terrible year for the rink because we had so many Chinooks. Hopefully not this year."
