Stubborn winter means Farmington ice rinks stay
The city of Farmington has closed the warming houses at its outdoor ice rinks, but will continue to maintain the ice for a few more days. Or weeks, the way this winter seems to be going.
Typically, the city tries to keep ice rinks open through mid-February. This year, the last day for the warming houses was Feb. 17. But the snow and cold are still around, so Farmington parks and recreation director Randy Distad is keeping the rinks open a few more days.
