People throughout Chilliwack have been taking advantage of the sub-zero temperatures, plus the frozen sloughs and fields that have come with it.
All week people have been lacing up their ice skates and skating outdoors.
Some created their own outdoor ice rinks by flooding a small area in their own backyards. Others, already with fields covered in a sheet of ice, didn’t have to do any work at all.
Out on McGuire Road, the family and friends of Bill Miller were just that lucky.
On Thursday, a group of about 15 people gathered to play ringette and hockey at Miller’s property on McGuire. He figures the huge natural ice rink takes up about half of his 10-acre property.
Though temperatures have been below zero, or right around the freezing mark all week long, the skies have been mainly sunny.
But, we can say goodbye to the blue sky and bright sunshine because clouds are expected to roll in Sunday, and along with them will be snow.
