Hillary Frank Ice Skating
View the Slideshow

Winter has been starting later and later in the Northeast. While this makes being outside more pleasant, it also means less snow and ice. Weekend America's Hillary Frank used to look forward to the cold when she was a kid. She'd pray for freezing temperatures so that she could skate on the 11-acre pond across the street from her house in Westport, Conn. A few weeks ago, Frank heard that the pond froze for the first time all winter, so she took a trip back home, in hopes of skating again.
