    What's this?!?

    New pool built in the fall of last year that I pass on my way to work daily.

    Intermittently over the fall/winter months I would notice this thing pop up and stay for a few days and then be gone.

    It's been there steady for a couple of weeks now.

    Just curious what in the world it is??

    Looks like some sort of inflatable dome .... maybe they put it up for a day or two during the winter and bump the pool temp up for an event and are now doing it to get a jump on the season??

    But ... that's just a guess!

    I am sure there is fresh air blown in continuously. It would take a long time to use up all that air though.

    There is a large fan blowing outside air into the dome constantly. That both provides fresh air and keeps the dome inflated.

    Hopefully they don't have any neighborhood youths that want to play Katniss with their bow and arrow in the back yard...
