Because of a disc problem in the official back of News Cut, I haven’t been able to get out to the local ice skating rink this season. But Locally Grown Northfield‘s Griff Wigley has certainly captured the elegance of skating rinks at night here in flyover country. The only things missing are the skaters.
January is a brilliant month for the hearty souls who live here, alternately cursed and embraced. Seems to me we need a photographic reminder every now and again. If you got one you’d like to add that captures January, please send it to me and I’ll try to put something together.
