I’ve skating

This is our local park today. I can’t remember the last time the pond froze over. The sculptor is by George Rickey. It was a delight to watch a fast moving ice hockey game on the pond.

The temperature must have fallen very low for that to happen Linda, I don't remember skating around here since the 60s when our local canal froze over.

Lovely to be able to get out & play games in company - but I'm afraid you are going to have to treasure up those photos & your memories as the PM has placed the UK back into national lock-down from tomorrow! No longer will people be able to go out & join in groups to play games! :(

I imagine that by the time the lock-down is lifted there will no longer be any ice on that pond - or on any other surface except our fridges!

Wow. I haven't seen any ice that would bear since the sixties! Don't think I cold get into my skates any more - and certainly couldn't stand up in them!

As you say, I imagine with global warming this will be a sight that we will not witness too often.
Having said that it is to be minus two to four for the next few days overnight. Today was very, very cold.

Lovely wintry pics, Linda. My parents are in Ayrshire, I’ll have to ask them if they’ve had any snow or ice.
