With a mere 108 days until the official start of winter, it seems fair to ask.
What sort of season will it be for building backyard ice rinks?
Last winter was pretty much a no-show in the Spokane area. Maybe 2012-13 will be different.

Several years ago during winter, a half dozen or so readers were kind enough to invite me to come skate on their backyard ice rinks.
One of my hosts noted that my hopscotching visits reminded him of “The Swimmer.”
