Sachem Patch received communication from a Farmingville man who built a hockey rink last week in his own back yard. Brian Wasson posted a gallery on his Facebook page of his family and the neighborhood kids zipping around on the rink during the last frigid cold spell.
"Was so much fun," Wasson messaged us on the Sachem Patch Twitter page. "Totaled near 15 hours of ice time last weekend. Slowly melting now, hopefully to refreeze again."
Our gallery shares a few of these photos. One caveat to the coolest back yard in Sachem: Wasson is a Ranger fan, and all non-Ranger gear had to be checked before you entered the ice.
Enjoy the photos.
