A week ago today so many in our region rushed out onto frozen ponds, creeks and canals, in pursuit of participating in hockey in its purest form. The novelty and splendor led many to capture much of last weekend’s shinny on digital cameras, and pass along the special moments to us this past week. We will never tire of this beautiful imagery, most particularly the intergeneration joy that’s captured in so much of it.
This weekend, at least for the shinny of heart, an unwelcome thaw is settling upon Washington, and we may well not again see this winter the needed sustained low temps to recreate last weekend’s fun. But rather than frown at the puddles of this weekend let’s relive the splendor of last. We thank Chris and Tyler Trice of Winhester, Va., for these beauties.
