My favorite time of the year is when I get the letter from our pool company setting the date for the pool to be opened. By contrast, one of my least favorite times of the year is when we get the letter with the date the pool will be closed. Lol
It's been a long, long winter and not a very warm spring here in New York. Yesterday was the big day for the pool to be opened. We had 40 degree temperatures and heavy rain all day yesterday and overnight as well. I felt bad for the pool guys working out there in the pouring rain.
The positive to all of that rain yesterday and overnight was that the pool got filled without a hose. Finally...something free. We took out the patio furniture last weekend and my husband spend all day Saturday power washing everything. This weekend the pool furniture will come out. This has to mean that warmer weather is coming...right??
Another good sign that warmer weather is coming is "our" ducks are back. For the past few weeks they have been mating away as they do every year. They really seem to like our pool especially when the cover is still on with water on top of it. I'm sure any day now I will wake up to a bunch of ducklings swimming around as we do every year. It's all good!
Hope it's warming up where you are.
