    oh my gosh. haha. I thought that was a practical joke until I saw the second picture. looks like a storm blew it in there? well don't worry, chlorine will clean up everything. just get a bottle of POP and a few thousand gallons of bleach. you and chemgeek can develop a new trampoline shock level section on the chlorine/cya chart

    We had a tent blow in ours last year, luckily none of the pole ends were too sharp, it was just a kids dome type one.

    I had a fair amount of irresponsible fun swimming in and out of it in the pool though (yes, yes, I was aware of all the risks )

    I always tell people the safest place for your patio furniture during a storm is in the pool. But I don't know about a trampoline.

    That was quite a headline! It grabbed my attention. We used to have a tramp too, but it never blew into our pool, only the horse corral 8)

    Update! Our tramp picture was featured on the local NBC affiliate - they show "weather photos" on the 10pm news each nite, and last night our pic was shown. LOL I got so many calls today "You were on tv last night!"

    LOL my son was devastated - even though he took the picture they showed, since he wasn't on t.v. like the rest of us...(they showed the pick of us taking the tramp out). LOL poor kid

    Re: Now how do we treat a Tramp in a POOL???

    LOL, yessiree...gotcha! It always seems that our son is the one who gets the spotlight and it hurts our daughter! Our son was aired with me on the spanish-speaking satellite channels while at one of the illegal immigrant rallies, and on tv with my husband at the big adoption bruhaha when my sister adopted our niece and was pictured with me in the Dallas Morning News at yet another illegal immigrant rally. Poor daughter just never manages to be in the picture or on the video... even though she's right there with us! So she's becoming a photographer and videographer instead

    Did your tramp create any problems with your liner thus far? It just seems that a tramp blown into a pool would land with such force that it would damage the liner or the railing.
