We are finally starting to deal with all the damage we had over the winter. There were five trees down, two of them quite large, one of the smaller ones directly on the pool, a large one across the driveway, and another large one taking out all the wires to the house. Two telephone poles up the street were knocked down as well, so repairs took some time. We were blocked in and without power for 6 days, and without cable TV, Internet, or telephone for 12 days. Thank god we have a generator.
I didn't know it when this picture was taken, and you can't tell from the photo, but one of the branches pierced the liner below the pool wall and the pool subsequently drained down well below the bottom of the shallow end. The liner was already fifteen years old, so no great loss there. It also appears that the liner track and metal coping band are completely rusted out and will need to be replaced as well.
There was extensive damage throughout the DC metro region. It took until now for our tree service to finally have time to come by and do more than clear the driveway. They say everything will be cleaned up by the end of the week. I also have two companies coming out to bid on the liner replacement now that you can actually get to the pool without climbing over trees.
