Rookie Mistake...

With a mild -13ºC we had a great crew last night. Kris, Ian, Jeff, Bill, Peter, Craig, and Kurt. We managed to only put on ONE coat. Yes, that's right, ONE.

It was a normal flood, we scraped and put down one coat on each surface then turned the flow of water down in order to "hydrate" ourselves around the fire. We "hydrated" for about 15 min letting the upper water flood to freeze. To all of our surprise as we got ready to turn on the water flow to give the upper another drink, we realized the water had frozen in the hose. Rookie Mistake!

We tried everything to thaw the "snow cone" plug at the end of the hose. Hot water, hose over the fire, and stepping on the hose to loosen the frozen H2O. Nothing worked. We had to pack it up. We put the hose away with a fair amount of water still in the line.

Note: Make sure there is ample water flow to ensure the hose doesn't freeze.

Total Coats:
Lower = 46 coats
Upper = 38 coats

It looks like we can flood Thursday, but then I think Mother Nature is telling us to put down the hose for the season. We will see.




 These guys showed up after we put the gear away. They had the rink to themselves and skated after our single coat.

Keeping the hose on the ice,
AND the water flowing! (next time),

Kurt

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
