The pool is open! It was 66 degrees when we opened it, but thanks to the solar cover and very high temps, it is up to almost 80 already! The kids were in when it was 66, but that's too cold for me!
It HAS been hot. After a very cool spring, we had temps that shot into the 90's for a couple of days. This week will be highs in the 80's until a major cooling over the weekend.
This is my poor toe! I did something I have never done before; I fell into the pool while trying to roll up the pool cover! I was teetering on the edge, trying to regain my balance, then realized I was going to fail. The next thing I knew, I was floundering in the pool.
I got out and laughed hysterically at myself. It wasn't until later that I realized I'd banged my toe on the concrete as I went over. Oh well. It looks way worse than it feels.
