I spent last Sunday cleaning the pool cover off. Getting rid of most of the pine needles that have appeared as well as some leaves (although I snapped an aluminum pole in half) I am thinking I am in pretty shape. I had it spotless when it was closed.
Then last night we get 4 inches of snow with projected below freezing temps for the next week. It makes me want to scream. The pool normally doesn't open until May anyway but I wanted to get as much of a jump on it as possible.
Looking at all of you California, Texas and Florida people are making me jealous.
