The Ronning family, who moved to Superior not long ago, spent Wednesday, Jan. 6, on the ice at the Pattison Rink in Superior.

"Our internet went out so we came skating," said Adam Ronning.

Charter Spectrum reported widespread internet outages across Wisconsin and Minnesota Wednesday afternoon.

The Ronnings' daughters, Raegan, 6, and Violet, 8, were on skates. Adam and Elaine Ronning wore boots to help Raegen stay upright.
