Those hoping to get in some skating time over the holidays in Sister Bay have been benched by mother nature. Milder temperatures have made it impossible to make ice at the outdoor Theresa K. Hilander Community Ice Rink. Joe Baldarrota, who manages the rink, says activities that are popular during a normal winter holiday season are at the mercy of the elements this year.
Baldarotta says he can't remember when this winter's overnight temperatures fell below 20-degrees. That makes it impossible to make and keep ice.
