January is the time of year that even when playing hockey inside at an arena, it is so cold that your feet get almost as cold as they do when playing outside.  I’ve noticed over the past few games that by the end of the game, the toes on my right foot, which had a run-in with some cold many moon ago, are in that numb-with-cold state.

January is also the time of year when there is no slop left over after the Zamboni / Olympia leaves the ice after flooding because the water is pretty much freezing instantly after it is layed down, unlike the fall and spring when warm days mean the first few shifts are always a little trickier because of wet spots on the ice.
