    We opened about a week ago and it's been raining in NY for the past 3 days with good wind gusts yesterday. But our large maple by the pool still has those "pesky helicopter whirlybirds things" (love that description, I have no clue what they are called either ) stuck all over it and they love to hover into the pool. I keep a leaf net over the pool until they are done dropping.

    Re: hello from iowa

    Welcome from another Iowan. I'm west of Ft Dodge about 25 miles. I don't have the maples with the helicopters near my pool, but I have a couple of small trees that bloom real pretty, & then shed the blooms. (The variety escapes my memory) Fills up the skimmer basket pretty fast. They're almost done shedding today, so hopefully it will be easier maintenance-wise from here on out. I've been shocking the last week, due to not getting my winter cover on last fall, almost done & ready to fire up my new Aquatrol Swcg. I'm pretty excited to get it dialed in & won't miss the constant jug-dumping. Another round of rain & storms last night, but today looks sunny with some wind.
