Kid Skates Along Frozen Street to Play Hockey With Friend

A young hockey player took to the streets of Northfield, Minnesota, as the area experienced icy conditions on Wednesday, January 11.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said there had been numerous jackknifed trucks, spin-outs, and rollovers after freezing rain left an “icy glaze” on most surfaces on Wednesday.

Footage shared on Instagram by Sarah Bowles shows a child skating along a frozen road surrounded by piles of snow. “Only in Minnesota do you wake up and skate down the street to your buddy’s house for a little morning ice time,” Bowles wrote. Credit: Sarah Bowles via Storyful
