City Accidentally Floods Softball Field, Calls It an Ice Rink, Then Invites the Public to Skate and Sled Free

roadskater's picture

There's nothing so brilliant for me to say, except kudos to having a nice attitude and trying to make something good and fun out of a perhaps major mistake. It seems like 5 to 6 inches of ice would make a good start at a rink, and I vote for the Fire Department to come help smooth it out some. I have not been to the local outdoor ice rink but did drive by a few days ago on the way to something else. It seemed to be well attended by teens and such, who looked to be having fun. As much fun as it might be, it's hard to imagine it being as good as an accidental surprise free large outdoor skate rink! This story put a smile into my night. How great it would be if we could make something good from mistakes more often!

Indeed

Cool story, and good job to the Farmington Daily Times for bothering to list its location on this continent right there on the front page. For example, if you don't happen to know which 'Oak Park' or 'Orangeville' an online paper is coming from, it takes years in internet-browsing time to find out.

Amen to that. If life hands you a bunch of lemons...
