Josh Desmarais waters the skating rink Thursday morning that he built so his three children could practice on Holly Street in Auburn. “They didn’t want to be embarrassed over at the Norway (Savings Bank) arena public skating so I built one,” he said. He hooks the hose to a hot water feed in the basement. “I usually do it at night but with these temperatures, I can do it now. You should see the homemade Zamboni we built out back,” he said while carefully shuffling across the slick surface. Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal
