I didn't put down plastic, I didn't build boards. Seth, the other boy, and I shovelled off the space and put the pile along the edge to create the boundary. We did that this morning. I then fought all day with my hose and the pipes trying to get the water to flow so I could flood the ice tonight. It was a bit frustrating but finally I got the hose clear of ice. Just a note for those who might find themselves in this same predicament; I put the hose in the bathtube with hot water. It took about 10minutes to melt the ice out and I cleaned the hose while I was at it...oh and then the bath tube.
Under the stars and a cool night sky I applied a generous amount of water straight to the grass snow mix area that the boys and I had cleared off earlier in the day. Now I will wait and see what it looks like tomorrow morning and hopefully flood again.
