At 8.30 pm, it's pouring rain, and still there are lots of skaters.
No matter what the weather, there always seem to be skaters on the ice at Harbourfront.
Despite that warm weather yesterday, up to 14 degrees, and the heavy rains last night (12 mm), the ice is fine this morning and the rink is open.
Forecast is for lots of rain and the high today was 14 but even so, at 6.45 there's a goodly number of skaters on the rink. Rain hasn't begun yet and the rink never had to close down even for a short time.
The rink opened this morning but shut down for the afternoon -- 10 degrees and sunny. However by 6 pm it was open again. Packed with skaters all evening.
Ice-making is going well. Staff said they started on Sunday.
There is a big sign for a new activity this winter: Thursday skate/wing/beer nights. So European, the idea that people could drink a beer in a public place and not fall down drunk or cause a "safety hazard" for other people. On a chilly night, a beer and some wings upstairs from the restaurant, and then an exhilarating skate to follow up -- that might become very popular.
