It was warm enough for a short hike yesterday. Nick and Justin were playing football with friends, so Joe was bored and in the mood for a walk.
In the winter, there are years when the fire department fills this area with water and it freezes over. It becomes a popular place to ice skate. The last couple of years, it just hasn't gotten cold enough. Joe had a blast running through it, because he knows it does collect tons of water in the Spring.
