It was a chore, for sure Hobbes. The hoses (I had to use 3 to get to the bottom of the hill) had to be drained and rolled up and brought into the house when I was done, so you'd always start with empty hoses.
When it's rink watering time, roll them out, set the nozzle so it's on, walk up the hill to the house, connect the hose, turn the faucet on and don't shut it off unitl you're done. Moving water doesn't freeze, you just don't give the water a chance to stop moving and freeze until it's on the ice where you want it.
