    Bad Pool Leak WIND STORM coming

    I have a bad(2 inches per 12 hours) pool leak that I was not able to detect in time for an approaching wind storm. Currently the above ground pool (28'x16) is sitting with about 1.5 foot of water uncovered. I fear that the wind is just going to destroy the walls. What should I do? The local pool company's wont touch it because of the cold weather. They suggested staking it off but that does not make any since to me because the wind could be coming from both directions??? I have about 16 hours to prepare. HELP TFP!!!!!
