Photo of the day: Who's up for some hockey?

Laurance Lake was frozen enough Sunday for an impromptu game of ice hockey for three friends on their way down from snowboarding at Mt. Hood Meadows (with warm, wet weather in the forecast, venturing out on the ice won't be safe until things cool of for a while).

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
