This past week has been perfect for ice skating and we got a real treat this year in that Johnson Lake has been frozen over perfectly with no snow. Johnson Lake is perfection this year and I have only seen it once before like this where it has gotten cold enough to skate the lakes without having snow cover the ice before you can get out for a skate. The whole town knows it and on any given afternoon it seems like half of the town is out skating the lake. The snow will arrive soon and we all know that the skating will end so everyone is really taking advantage of it. I posted a few photos of my friend Amelie skating with her son Charlie from this past week and a photo of my new sorel boots on the ice. The colour of the ice is really beautiful this year.
