The Lack Of Freezing

from the Christian Science Monitor,

It used to be that sometime in November Canadians could flatten out the snow behind the house, let the water hose run for a few hours, and get a nice flat sheet of ice.
But warm weather is ruining that Canadian tradition: the backyard skating rink. It is also helping a company that sells artificial rinks that cost about the same as a swimming pool.
The outdoor rinks – which can be either portable or permanent – use plastic pipes and a refrigeration unit to make an ice rink, even when temperatures are well above freezing.
