    A Bitterswet Day

    Today I installed the winter cover and leaf cover on my pool. Although no one has been swimming for nearly a month, it still chokes me up a bit I won't be able to see my TFP sparkling water for many months!

    Took mine down yesterday....Very sad to see that sparkly water being used for irrigation instead of swimming. I ended up doing a complete tear down as we will be doing some landscaping for next season. At least we'll have space for the ice rink if our winter permits.

    Nice cover/wrap you did. See you next spring.

    I feel your pain!
    We still need to drain and put the cover on. We've just been too busy to get to it. Temps got down to 37 deg F last night, so I better move fast.

    john.esher: I also wanted to ask where you got your outdoor clock from? Is it weather proof? We are looking for one and noticed yours in the pic.

    You can also sleep well knowing your pool is well covered, and have wonderful dreams of next year's swimming season.

    I got it at Lowe's. Not sure of the brand Garden Treasures maybe?

    It's going to be a long winter!

    Sad indeed. Took ours down last week. I could have left it up, but it only takes a few hours to set back up and we so enjoy our patio during the fall and winter.
