Cleared for Skating

Troy Hounshell of Enfield shovels the ice of Mascoma Lake to make space for his wife, who got a pair of ice skates for Christmas, to skate Sunday, December 29, 2013. Hounshell hoped to get sufficient space cleared before the predicted rain so that it would help smooth rough patches on the ice.
