Pool Opening Day

It has arrived!


The Pool
Morning May 16, 2017
Pool opening day is here and I have taken the day off to get the summer season into full swing. This is the latest that I have ever opened the pool. But, the weather has been problematic this year.

It is 50 degrees outside and I know that by the end of the day I will be hot and sweaty--but it will feel so good.

I remember that I used to open the pool on the first weekend of April. Then the date began to migrate towards the end of April. This year I planned for the first weekend in May--but two weekends of cold weather have brought me to mid-May with the hopes of seeing the clear water and beginning the pool season.

I have already reconnected the plumbing and installed the pump, so some of the basic work is done. It is a matter of removing the cover and vacuuming the dirt from the winter and adjusting the chemicals. If only it were as easy as I make it sound.

Let the summertime begin! Temperatures are supposed to get into the 90's later this week. Finally.
