    I have not really had a chance to miss mine but want to use it. By the time I got my pool in order it was too cold to swim. So I am waiting for swim season.

    Henry...I would imagine that our weather right now isn't much different from your's...Right now in Indiana (NW corner) we are having a snow storm...we have 6 inches on the ground right now...maybe 7 and we are expecting another 5-7 inches tonight and tomorrow of Lake Effect snow. When the wind blows from the North North East those of us at the south end of Lake Michigan get snow that comes from cold winds picking warmer moisture off the lake which is not frozen, and depositing that moisture inland...It can snow for days if the wind is right!!!

    I have not had a chance to miss the pool as it is being installed now.

    I love that picture of the kids sledding! What a great shot!

    I have to say I really miss the cold weather right now. Winter just does not feel right and I would like to dress in winter clothes. It's been in the mid 70s here and too warm for this time of year.

    Re: SEVENTY TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL SPRING!!!!!

    I do miss summer, but I also do love winter.

    Our weather here in ND has been COLD! Like -30 air temp and -50 windchill!

    But on a good note, its going to warm up to above zero so that means snowmobiling weather.

    Attached is a pic for you all to enjoy.

    You go fast enough, I think you can get that sled from one end of the pool to the other.

    This was our first time out and I'll tell ya, I've never had so much fun. We're hooked. I was so excited that my son got his first buck, it didn't matter that I didn't get one. I will this year though. Gonna get me a bow and sling some arrows in September Archery 2010.

    Man, I love winter sports too...I miss Ice Fishing...I haven't been since I broke my ankle in Nov of 07. Cold weather and all that damage don't mix...I am going to look at the end of the season for good deals on cold weather gear...and get back to it next winter...I miss the ICE.

    Re: SEVENTY TWO MORE DAYS UNTIL SPRING!!!!!

    I'm looking forward to the first season with our pool. We put in a used ABG at the end of the season last year and were only in it when it was filling and thigh deep. Looking forward to summer & swimming... hoping it's warmer than last year though so we have warm water

    Gotta get on the weight loss wagon before summer gets here.. better get my groove on !!
