Reporting back from U.S. Nationals today! Okay, this is really behind the scenes: not what you normally would see, but we are not supposed to take pictures of the actual competition.
So you thought skating was just about bejeweled skating outfits and graceful movement! But the true excitement is when the Zamboni doors open and the eager crew runs out to fill all those little (and not so little) holes in the ice, zig-zagging around the rink so that the Zamboni doesn’t hit them. Skills!
A new Olympic event? I’m there!

I’m not sure about everyone else, but I thought it was a hoot! Thanks for reading, Anne!

Awesome, Jo! You all had one of the most important jobs of the competition. Like Babbette said, “move that snow!”
