    LOL! And I would rather not have any snow. Wintery precipitation just causes problems down here.

    Heck we get wind and snow here in Pa! I hate it but that's the lay of the land and how Mother Nature is.

    I believe that the wind took that pool with only 2 inches of water. These above ground sets ups are very, very sensitive to wind.

    I was surprised. 2" of water in a 16 ft pool probably weighs around 2500 lbs. (Just an educated guess, I didn't do the actual math.)
