A brutal ice storm made things really shitty for a lot of people this weekend, but these enterprising gentlemen from Vermont found a way to make the best of the situation.

After discovering that the storm had created a layer of ice thick enough to skate on in their backyard, these guys decided to grab their sticks and lace up their skates for a game of backyard hockey. It's like pond hockey, but weirder.
