Oklahomans have a love/hate relationship with ice. On one hand, we have devastating storms. On the other, we have the Oklahoma City Barons hockey team and ice rinks dotting the map, including a brand-new outdoor rink debuting Friday at the Festival Marketplace in Edmond. Running from noon to 10 p.m. daily, the rink aims to
