Freezing Drizzle Turns Illinois Neighborhood Into Ice Rink

A man in Champaign, Illinois, took full advantage of the cold weather on January 8 when he grabbed his ice skates to glide along the frozen ground outside his home.

Footage tweeted by Sarah Anderson shows the skating enthusiast skimming down the driveway and onto the icy street ahead.

“Skates optional, salt required today in Champaign,” she joked alongside the clip.
