    The horror...the horror

    It's raining and 64 degrees Will we ever get in the pool again?!?!

    One day out of the pool and that's what it feels like, despite about a week or more of near-perfect days for swimming and solar heating. Funny how the brain works

    I hear you. We went through 400 gallons which is 2 tanks of heating oil in February and March. It cost us $600 to fill up in February and $800 in March. We saw -32 degrees going to work in the morning, I think it wad early March. I took my first bicycle ride on a new bike I picked up on March 6th and I thought it was pretty warm at 22 after the extreme cold we were experiencing. And now we are complaining that it's only in the 70's.

    Yeah... I found a new appreciation for 20 degree days after the cold winter we had this past year!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
