Where I live in Maryland, the summers are hot, and the winters are temperate. If we are lucky maybe we will get a cold snowstorms a year. But while we are in the midst of the Polar Vortex, the days and nights are freezing. The cold has frozen the ponds allowing the hockey-loving locals to play a little shinny. And that is what both Andrew and I did today. Playing hockey on the ponds is a great experience, it brings people together who love the greatest “minor sport” in the world. Both pictures after the jump!
